Self-Balancing EniCycle Is Like A Segway For The Circus

Finally, a unicycle that even geeks can ride! Designer Aleksander Polutnik says it only takes few minutes to learn how to ride the eniCycle because it uses mini-gyroscopes and an embedded processor to keep you balanced. Watch it in action:

The EniCycle is powered by an electric 1000-watt hub motor that you lean forward to set into motion—just like a Segway. Measuring your vertical angle 100 times a second, the gyroscopes make adjustments to help keep you balanced.

So far Polutnik has built two prototypes and is seeking a partner for mass manufacturing. Neat!
