MIT Media Lab scientists released this remarkable video of their folding car. They expect it to go into production in 2013. And yes, it’s electric. Whoa, Bessie.

MIT expects riffs on these to go into mass production late 2013, the scientist says in the video below. Check out this this remarkable looking MIT folding car. These folding cars, says the MIT scientist, will probably go into production by 2013. This video rocks. Wild.
