The Hiriko Fold features wheels that have a zero turning radius and are capable of turning sideways.

Created by DENOKINN and MIT's Changing Places group, the itsy-bitsy buggy is just five feet long and has room for two passengers.

The Hiriko Fold is slated to go on sale in 2013 in Barcelona, Berlin and San Francisco.
