Piaggio introduced an interesting battery powered concept recently.

An oversized, self-powered topcase of sorts...

There is probably some cool tech involved in this thing......but as with most concepts I don't see this one moving past pre-production.

Saw this on our local news this morning thought it was pretty cool but only looked large enough for A bag of groceries. Think it's super cool though, would be fun to have....... Nerd emoticon Oh just saw a better pic, maybe a few bags of groceries....

Well the article explains that it IS coming.

It could bring new meaning to the term 'pet carrier'. Ride your bike while Fido follows in the robot, just remove the top hatch.
