poimo – Portable and Inflatable Mobility –



poimo is a new mobility combining personal mobility and soft robotics technology, which is soft, safe, and lightweight enough for people to carry. Users can ride it on and off anywhere. This mobility aims at supporting the first mile / last mile and connecting public transportation and destinations seamlessly. To reduce the weight of its body along with its inflatable structure, we have developed a wireless / batteryless powering system suitable for this mobility in cooperation with the wireless power transfer group.
