In some urban areas finding a place to park your car can be a huge challenge. A group of researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have created a car that's able to fold in on itself to make it more compact for storage. The vehicle is called the Armadillo-T and is a prototype electric minicar.

The car is able to take away the rear part of its body reducing its size from the original 110 inches long down to approximately 65-inches long when folded. The vehicle has all-wheel drive and is an all electric car with two seats and electric motors inside each wheel.

When folded the vehicle takes up one third of the five-meter long parking space. The vehicle is also capable of turning in a 360° circle and has a smartphone interface remote control.
