Solowheel – Green Portable Transport – Segway Challenger?

What looks like a Segway challenger but a bit more compact the  Solowheel is a self balancing electric unicycle that is  basically a wheel and two foldable leg pads which uses gyroscope technology to help the rider control it  by leaning forward or backward aka Segway Style.

The unit is powered by a 1000-Watt motor; it reclaims energy when going downhill or slowing down which is stored in the on board lithium battery. The unicycle costs £975 and will be available in the UK from next month, looks like an ingenuous way to get around and not as obtrusive as the Segway.
