A group of industrial design students at California State University in Long Beach wanted to develop a people-powered means to transport gear over short distances. Bicycles are too big and cumbersome, so they invented the Nimble: a kick scooter with a cargo platform.
The Nimble comes with a removable basket for loose items and a sturdy rack for larger objects. There's a kickstand to help it stay upright. You can see more photos at Core 77.
