Our future urban environment will be very crowded that we need to design small and compact transportation for our future needs. Simon Colabufalo, an Australian industrial designer, has designed Metrotopia, a 2 seater electric vehicle that runs only on one rotating wheel for great maneuverability in tight urban spaces. Since Melbourne boasts the largest tram network in the world, Simon has designed this vehicle to recharge automatically while docked inside its tram. The electric motor and power cell are housed inside the ball for a lower center of gravity and superior handling

The sphere has copper lining in between the rubber tread used to recharge the unit while docked with the tram.
