Designed by LA based designer, inventor and entrepreneur, Peter Treadway, the “Treadways” are wearable transportation. Essentially a rechargeable, motorized pair of shoe attachments designed to traverse the “last mile,” the Treadways are the glue that hold the public transportation system together. You just click in and out of them- or wear them all day. They make it easier to cover short distance trips to local retail outlets, to get to a nearby train station, from the bus to work, to anywhere that used to be either a short drive or a [too] long walk. Cars are overused and increasing gas mileage will not change congestion on the road. If you need to get somewhere far from home, you drive, and if you need to get somewhere close to home, you still drive.
You can wear Treadways while driving a car, so you don’t have to choose either/or. They are designed to be flexible so they can be worn with most other forms of transportation. Whenever they are not in use, they are just “shoes”. At 3 lbs each, they are as light as an article of clothing. They have a 10-mile range and can travel at 10+ mph. Lightweight Lithium Ion Nanophosphate batteries are charged through a wall outlet at home, work, or the coffee shop.
