    Link: Self Balancing Unicycle: Better Than The Segway? - It`s a unicycle for dummies: It moves on its own and self-corrects. But is it cool?

    This is just a unicycle wheel chair... Handicapped people must hate poo like this lol

    I can`t imagine when something like this would be useful.

    The technology looks amazing, and with that taken into account I imagine it comes with a pretty hefty price tag. I`d love one though.

    It looks like the bike is way more fun and safe to ride than this or segway. I`m starting to prefer my bike even over my car lately....

    Riding a real unicycle is not difficult at all, and provides great exercise. This is kind of a pointless invention.

    I`d buy one of these just so I could ride around the mall and piss off the mall security, whom ride around on segways... I`m almost betting this thing can move faster too.

    the women "i have legs and i`m using them to build a better and healthier body"

    the man "i have legs and i`m too lazy to use them, i judge the paraplegics and treat them differently but secretly i want to use wheelchairs just like them because i`m lazy and have too much money"

    How damn lazy do you have to be? Walk you lazy bastard. If it`s that far, then drive. Or ride a bike so you have to pedal and get some exercise. How sad.

    "What do you do with your hands?"
    You text, of course, or hold your ipad to watch a movie. Or perhaps hold a couple of frappachinoes.

    You`re just taking the skill out of unicycling.

    "But is it cool?"

    Hmm, well suppose `80s Arnold Schwarzenegger walks up to you and says "I need your clothes, your boots and your unicycle."

    No, that`s not cool. It would make an awesome scene in Terminator, but not cool IRL.

    No skill. No effort. Not cool.

    Clever design, though. Not putting down the designers; they did their job and no doubt the technology is transferable to something worthwhile.
