Self Balancing Unicycle: Better Than The Segway?

Submitted by: DingDingDong 6 years ago Tech

It"s a unicycle for dummies: It moves on its own and self-corrects. But is it cool?

For 1500, I say no it is not cool. I would rather buy a motorcycle.

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.

"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.

As an amateur unicyclist, I find this very stupid.

You`re just taking the skill out of unicycling.

"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.

That`s the way you meet some nice jogger lady. by looking like a lazy ass. It`s like impressing a librarian by sitting on a book.

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.

Why don`t people just use their feet? That`s basically a disabled mobility chair without a backrest...

On a side note. I would love to see some 400+ lb man try and ride this thing. That would make my day. lol

i love the ending
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"

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.

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

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....

It only self balances forward and backward... you better not fall off to the side.

Oh. If you watch to the end, you can see what this is good for: for those guys who want to meet hot jogger girls without having to do all that running stuff.

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.
