    You only need witness the success of the Transformers movie franchise to know that people like the idea of things changing into other things.
    Let's assume that a Camaro that turns into an Autobot isn't suitable for your commute however. How about a briefcase that turns into an electric scooter?

    That's what Green Energy Motors Corp. can sell you for the princely sum of $6,000.

    Well, $5,990. Or $2,995 if you're quick to take them up on a special 50 percent-off introductory offer.

    The Commute-Case, as it's known, is essentially a briefcase you can ride to work.

    It's a scooter more in the upright, childs-toy mold than it is a proper step-through motorcycle, but it's surprisingly adaptable as a result.

    It is, to all intents and purposes, briefcase-shaped. But extend sections at the front and rear and wheels and a set of handlebars pop out, while convenient steps drop down from each side of the case allowing you to ride it.

    Doesn't something like this get promoted about every 18 months. Usually at a similar price.
    Whether a briefcase, luggage, folding scooter, etc. My question is how beneficial is it? And has anyone EVER seen someone use it at an airport or in a city?

    With the sheer number of airports visited by MilePointers in a year, it seems like someone would have seen one actually being used.

    "A" for idea and effort, but how practical? Besides, you wouldn't earn Gold Points!
