    Although an electric motorbike might be a fun and economical form of transportation, finding parking for the thing could be problematic. That's where the Tatamel Bike comes in, as it can fit beneath a desk when folded.

    Developed by Japanese startup Icoma, the Tatamel currently exists as a fully functioning prototype. The company is planning on taking it into production.

    When unfolded for riding, the motorbike measures 1,230 mm long by 1,000 mm tall by 650 mm wide (48.4 by 39.3 by 25.6 in). Its 600-watt motor is powered by 12-Ah lithium-ion-phosphate battery, delivering a top speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) and a maximum range of around 50 km (31 miles). It should be noted that the performance figures are estimates for the final production model.

    Once folded for storage, the Tatamel measures 700 by 680 by 260 mm (27.6 by 26.8 by 10.2 in). It can still be rolled along on its front wheel and a rear set of fold-down caster wheels, with the rider pulling it by a hinged handle.
