poimo – Portable and Inflatable Mobility – (2020)



poimo is a new mobility that combines personal mobility and soft robotics technology, which is soft, safe, and lightweight enough for a single person to carry. This mobility aims to support the first mile / last mile and thereby connect public transportation and destinations seamlessly. In the 2020 version, in addition to the newly developed motorcycle and wheelchair models with inflatable tires, we have implemented the software that allows users to design a vehicle by simply imagining the desired vehicle and taking a riding posture.
