Self-Balancing eniCycle is Like a Segway for the Circus

Finally, a unicycle that even I could ride! Designer, Aleksander Polutnik, says it takes only 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's electric-powered 1000 watt motor kicks into gear as you lean forward—similar to riding a Segway. The gyroscopes help you stay upright while measuring your vertical angle 100 times a second.

So far Polutnik has built two prototypes, and is looking for big business to help him sell the thing. I hope he does. [Enicycle via Core77 via DVICE]
