|Folding Bike. |
No - there is no explanation or justification in the article as to why the folding bike makes the list. The article doesn't even mention a particular brand or model. Conceptually, folding bikes are hardly new or futuristic. The one pictured is sold through Mini dealers, though I suspect they are built by Dahon. I will attest that a good-quality compactly folding bike can be a nice thing, and some of the models available today are much better than what was available a couple of decades ago. But I'm still not sure why this was listed first.

It looks like it was made from an erector/meccano set - and even the wheels come apart into little sections. Yeah - that bodes well.
In any case, the mistake doesn't give much credibility to the article.
