Capella, the Electric Backpack bicycle for green futurists

What's white and orange, can get you anywhere in the city in a jiffy and folds up like a Swiss Army Knife? It's the new Capella backpack electric bicycle developed by Vietnamese industrial design student Truong Minh Nhat. The vehicle was created for Nhat's graduation thesis, but the student's next-gen bike was met with so much approval he has decided to take the creation commercial by snapping up the official intellectual property rights. No word on pricing or release date but if this is the future of bikes in Asia it may be time for the West to step up to the two-wheeled challenge.
