The Solowheel is the mode of transportation I have been waiting for since I was a kid. Anyone born in the 80′s will remember the featured character “Gizmo Duck” from the hit TV show Duck Tails. He had a single wheel instead of legs to zip around on. Now this childhood fantasy had come to life.
I have always thought the Segway to be to big and bulky to be a convenient mode of transportation, this new product solves that. Weighing only 20 pounds the Solowheel even has a handle for you to carry it like a briefcase when you arrive at your destination.
The gyroscope technology that is built into this unicycle uses gyro sensors, a 1000-Watt motor and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery to carry a person swiftly and easily through the streets. By simply leaning forward or backward it’s easy to learn, so you can just step and go! The battery even recaptures energy when going downhill or slowing down so you can ride for two straight hours on a single 45 minute charge.
