Researchers have created a prototype car which can fold in half with just the press of a button on the driver's smartphone.
In-Soo Suh, an associate professor of the Graduate School for Green Transportation at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), has named the smart car the Armadillo-T.
After the vehicle is parked, a stabilizing wheel comes out from underneath, followed by the back of the car curling forwards and upwards. The car is able to shrink itself down to just under five-and-a-half feet, ABC News reported.
Suh and his co-workers also placed cameras in place of side view mirrors for reducing space blind spots by providing a more comprehensive side view.
A driver can also partly control the car by their smartphone..
