Yes. As Ryan Chin said, this kind of conceptual small car may be more applicable in Shanghai or Tokyo. It means very less for ordinary house hold use in US. --- Peng Zeng (Researcher@Illinoie Institute of Technology)

This is a very good and not so futuristic concept in the personal transportation. As a part of EV design team , we had tried a similar compact 2 seater EV in our lab and it gave quite interesting results. The fold-able and stack-able concept is something really innovative and makes such vehicle very attractive as Public Transportation in the downtown areas of metropolis. The stack-able concept is mainly useful in vehicles for hire where the car on the top of the stack can be hired. Such technology needs to be commercialized very fast

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
