What the...?

Oddball portable suitcase commuter bike

OK, so we've seen suitcase-style motorcycles before (see Honda's Motocompo for the ultimate expression of the idea) but this is a new one on us.

A patent filed by US firm Boxx Corp from Portland, Oregon, the picture shows a rectangular bike that, presumably, is intended to be a portable commuter vehicle. We're guessing it must be battery powered.

A quick search shows that Boxx Corp does have a website, with nothing but a picture of a cardboard box and a countdown on there, saying “Prototyping Program” and showing there's still 121 days to go until, well, presumably something will happen. Is this bike the thing that's being prototyped?
