DIY: Flat pack scooters and bike

I’m not sure exactly how useful these things are, but as a concept they are definitely cool. Flat pack furniture, sure. But I’m not so sure about flat pack vehicles, these look like they might have some structural issues.

This is the work of french designer Nicolas Belly, who created these as a (winning) entry is a design contest for the L’ ARGUS Design Competition. Nicolas won 2nd place with his design, but I doubt we’ll ever see these in production. Made from mostly plywood, Nicolas’ vehicles look cool, and would no doubt make a cool display piece in some loft somewhere. I doubt they would be comfortable to use though, and not very durable. Maybe if they were constructed from carbon fiber.
