Folding clipless pedals?

I've seen folding pedals, for folding bikes.
And I've seen clipless pedals.
I've even seen hybrid pedals, which were clipless pedals on one side and ordinary flats on the other.

But does anybody make folding, clipless pedals?

To my knowledge, the closest you’ll get are removable clipless pedals by MKS.

I've been looking at the MKS site, and the Urban Step-in A Ezy Superior looks like exactly what I'm looking for:
The “Urban Step-In A” is dual function pedal that’s perfect for those who use one bike for everything, or a cyclist who is looking for pedals that work with-or-without cleats.The platform side of the pedal provides a large and stable platform, while the other side allows you to clip-in with the MKS US-A cleat set (Time ATAC compatible). The platform side has a concave shape that allows you to comfortable use shoes with cleats installed, such as when pedaling through a congested area.

The patented Ezy Superior system allows for safe, rapid, and toolless removal of pedals for travel, storage, or flexibility. Particularly popular as an upgrade for folding bicycles, those who take their bikes on mass transit, or travel bikes with coupler systems our Ezy superior system can dramatical improve ride quality while saving space.
​​​​​​I've been browsing the Wellgo site and found nothing equivalent.

That may be because the site has no meaningful search function.

How about folding clipless hybrid pedals? One pedal to rule them all. And I want them in SPD.

Indeed, Wellgo has many clipless models in QRD = quick release, SPD and road and also mixed platform one side/SPD the other side.

There is much more choice from Wellgo in QRD than MKS ESY. Be careful with MKS ESY: ESY and ESY Superior are two incompatible systems.

Try Wellgo and MKS for removable pedals. As far as I know, there are no folding clipless pedals.

Wellgo is very common on ebay and many China based/linked online shopping sites.
Very easy to find here in Singapore.

MKS seems to take a 'keen finder will be rewarded' stance and they are harder to find needing an actual store that distributes them. (at least over here )

I have built a folding clipless pedal by combining a folding Brompton pedal with an eggbeater pedal. It has worked perfectly now for years :
