Someone suggested a scooter powered by a Stirling engine. Then you'd
cover the transportation plus engine angles. It would solve pollution
problems, improve the traffic situation, raise new regulatory problems,
and it fits in a duffle bag. So it is a reasonable guess. Not that new,
I've seen motorized scooters before, but if the engine is really great
then maybe it would be something.
