I find this amazing. The Contortionist is a bike that can be folded into its entire circumference. The entire mechanism somehow folds in between its 24-inch wheels. And it leaves a couple of handles so you can drag the thing around.
From The Gadget Blog:
The inventor? A 24-year-old student from Battersea, London. Dominic Hargreaves was apparently unsatisfied with his folding bikeâ€”which collapsed on himâ€”so he set out to design his own, with an emphasis on hardiness. The mechanical reality that makes this gadget work? The front whell, engineered to rotate and reposition to make compactness achievable. I guess the only way you can make it any more compact is if you use smaller wheels or actually engineer folding wheels.
