Its a segway with a seat and a handlebar

If you’ve been on the tech front page, you might have heard about Honda’s Uni-Cub, a small personal mobility technology which had a self-balancing multidirectional movement capability. Only exploited in making an OK-GO visual dance. Some liked it, some hated it. It kind of solves a problem that did not exist in the first place.

Now, a guy who goes by the name Sean Chan likes to believe that he and his team have designed the world’s first e-unicycle with gyro force technology.

"An electric vehicle the industry couldn’t offer until now. Quick to response, comfortable and turns heads wherever you go."

The first US- patented unicycle was in 1869 made by a man named Frederick Myers. But unicycles have till date, failed to capture any kind of market due to their lack of trust in providing balance and stability. That is the only reason you would have only seen them in circuses, by street performers, and in festivals rather than as a mode of transport.

Coming to change that very notion is the Uno Bolt Electric Unicycle that works to your advantage by making use of its gyroscopic stabilizer system, making riding as easy as leaning in the direction you want to go.

With a top speed of 22 mph and range of 25 miles, the makers have given it enough oomph to allow you a good amount of practicality for your everyday use. Made out of lightweight military-grade composites, the compact body helps the rider move about with the same amount of space one would need if he was walking.

Equipped with an all-terrain tire, the Uno Bolt can tread multiple terrains your city streets can throw at you and LED headlight and taillight setup for you to even travel in the night. An integrated parking stand allows you to place the Uno Bolt just about anywhere and not keep you busy to find a safe wall to lean it against once you have done riding.

The tilt of your body controls the Bolt’s movements and the built-in stabilizing sensors are, apparently, the quickest responding gyroscope to be put into a one-wheel machine. This makes the Uno Bolt as safe as you will be when to go out for a brisk walk or a jog. You lean forward to accelerate, backward to slow, brake, and reverse, and left or right to turn.

Powering it will be a 1000W motor equipped with a 4.4 Ah lithium battery which can be recharged in just under 45 minutes on a good lunch. The Uno Bolt weighs 45 pounds and can easily climb a 45-degree incline with ease.

All of this can be yours for $1,500, but is it street legal? Honestly, I have no clue. I don’t even know if it can be as practical as your everyday transportation?

And that is why I can’t wait to try one myself. I think I’ll like it.
