It may not be the most stylish of machines, but weighing just 5kg and capable of reaching 12mph, the Impossible has pushed folding bike innovation even further.
Running on ten 2,900 mAh batteries the bike can be recharged using a household plug socket and has a range of up to 15.6 miles before you need to plug it in again.
The selling point of the machine, however, is that you can easily fit it in a backpack, with what looks like minimal fuss involved in the disassembly process.
The project, however, is still in its infancy, with Impossible Technology taking to crowdfunding website Kickstarter to raise the money needed to fully launch the product.
If you want an Impossible bike you have to pledge CAD$430, with production and shipping estimated for August 2015.
