Danny Kim has started his own car company, though, except for the old Land Rover he converted to run on biodiesel, his "cars" all have two wheels. He's patented a couple of electric cargo scooters, one of which folds up entirely to fit in elevators, pickup trucks... your apartment.

The vehicle that could put Lit Motors on the map is his C1. Part motorcycle, part car, he calls it a cyclecar. It's two-wheeled and tilts and leans like a motorycle, but it's fully enclosed and steers like a car. And best of all, thanks to gyroscopes, it doesn't fall down.

The Lit Motors design house in San Franciso's SOMA is layered with his designs. Kim takes us for a tour of the old warehouse where he parks his biodiesel Land Rover, his patented EV cargo scooters and his cyclecar prototype-in-progress.
