This self-balancing unicycle Solowheel powered by gyroscope technology is the "smallest, greenest, and most convenient people mover ever invented". This self-balancing unicycle combines a wheel and two foldable internally foot platforms plus interior gyro sensors, a 1000-Watt motor and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. All this technology is housed under a visually appealing, slim case with leg pads and a handle for easy carrying. The Solowheel is also 100% battery operated and is speed is easily controlled by leaning forward to go forward and backward to slow down. Also cool is how the highly efficient lithium ion battery recaptures energy when going downhill or slowing down, has a two hour battery life and can be fully recharged in only forty-five minutes. Expect the Solowheel to be available from April for a price of US $1495 complete with an instructional DVD and charger.
