UNO -MotorUnicycle is cool

Operation of the 54.4 kg (120 lb) machine is simple, in fact it's so simple there are no controls except for an on-off switch. To go forward you simply push your body weight forward to tilt the machine. To back up, just lean back on the seat to tilt it backwards and back it goes. The farther you lean, the faster it accelerates. The gyro tells the ECU how much to accelerate and that in turn delivers the proper amount of current to the electric motors, one for each wheel.

Finally! Why did it took that long to have this rolling out on the streets? This would definitely make me one mean-looking, kick-ass, balance-maniac dude. But I think I'll pass on the helmet. You see ever since I started riding bikes, I always make a pass on helmets and look where it got me- 28 crashes and over 41 inches of stitches. Don't be a fool, wrap your tool, I mean your head be not like me, well, a fool.
