News reaches us of a possible successor to those so-familiar tuk-tuks of Asia and the hair-raising matatu and boda boda taxis of Africa. According to sources in Nairobi, electric 3-wheel taxis that could revolutionize city travel are well into the testing phase. Known as mellowcabs, they are powered by converting and storing the kinetic energy which is usually lost in braking. Other pluses include in-vehicle charging points, wifi and entertainment tablets and an electronic invitation to rate your driver.
