@SuperBeast the transforming is for speed, when you get faster in unicycle mode it gets "very scary to drive"(words of the inventor) of so they made it a motorcycle for higher speed

@BrimstoneOne..... it looks like it takes up about the same space when in 1 wheel or 2 wheel.... the frame of the bike takes up the most space... not the wheels...

that`s pretty cool, and doing an `lol` to all those that go `why would one need this?`

Well, when park fees at some private garages are determined by the space you pack in, determines how much you pat out. Small "foot print", smaller the fee. Also in a people congested space, were maneuverability would as asset where over speed and size, especially where people and vehicles and sharing the same transit space.

In uni mode one would be able to zip around/ thru a crowd, where everything else, vehicles wise would be reduced to a crawl or stand still.

looks fun, until you accidentally press the transform button while flying down the highway.

@bataleon, i dunno how a one wheeled version would be of any use, other than i guess for parking in small spaces

Segway to motorcycle.
I thought it was lam because I was expecting to be more impressed in the transformation, but I misjudged it.

It is not a unicycle. I don`t quite get the point of the TWO wheels coming together side by side. I guess it`s easier to maneuver in small areas but that`s about it. UNI means one, and a unicycle is a lot harder to ride than this. It`s interesting looking but not really practical or useful and far from being a transformer.

I think it`s kind of cool. I`d get one if it wasn`t four our abysmal climate and for what D3rAnG3d said

Gotta give props for the ingenuity, but it still looks like a pile of poo.

I wouldn`t trust going fast on that thing at all.... 1 wheel + interstate speeds = deadz

Unless it doesn`t require a driver and can shoot things and think for itself? Not the `first transformer.` As if.

/And I`d never have it, too much crap to break.
//still kinda cool though.

Thetas: It`s useful if you live in an apartment and don`t have a garage to store it in. It`s electric so they`ll be no worries of CO emissions indoors.

This guy built the Uno did not build it with the North American market in mind, but more with the Japanese market and places where space is a notable concern.

That`s just something to keep in mind when thinking about it.

Who would ride a motorized unicycle? Also they need to smooth out the transition.

Sucks. Doesn`t have a propper engine.
I like to hear rev rev. Not zoom zoom.
But it`s easy to park.
