Remember The Uno prototype, the unicycle that looked like a great way to face-plant? Well, it is now turning into more than a fact and inventor Ben Gulak plans to produce the thing. Meanwhile, he made sure to turn The Uno into a unicycle that transforms into a two-wheeler as it reaches the speed of 20mph and this should mean a safer ride.

The inventor itself says: “The original Uno was quite scary to speed up on. This is a much more user-friendly experience.” To us, it looks like they made sure not even clowns will ride the thing, but we do have to appreciate the ingenuity. Hit the jump to see the new Uno prototype and expect preproduction models early next year.

All in one: Unicycle and Two-wheeler!

Strange! Is this really existing or is it only a concept? Well, I must say that it really caught my attention and interest, that’s why I would love to see this one in person...

Well, the thing with rides like this is that there are always a “hard part”. First is of course balancing for the beginners, then comes acceleration, considering that it needs balance as well and of course braking as well. The last would be it’s maneuverability.
