Developed by Québécois inventor Yvon Martel, it's called the MTT-136. The idea itself is pretty simple: put an electric motor and battery pack inside an aluminum box powering a tread going around its circumference and throw a handlebar on one end. It weighs just 280 pounds, it can schlepp you along for anywhere from 28 to 130 miles on a charge time ranging from 15 minutes to 8 hours. Martel is currently looking for manufacturing partner.
