Raw material shortages and general economic difficulties in Europe following the Second World War made very small, economical cars popular in many countries. Spain’s economy was relatively isolated from the developed world. It operated at a lower economic level than the rest of Western Europe, and was forced to develop domestic substitutes for hard-to-get imported products and technologies.

A 1906 issue of Scientific American examines motorized roller skates exhibited at that year’s Paris Automobile Show. There were several models in development by different inventors at the time, including these by French inventor M. Constantini. They’re basically tiny cars that he wore on his feet:In view of the fact that each skate contains a gasoline motor, carbureter, battery, and spark coil, it will be seen that the whole has been reduced to a comparatively small size.
