Solowheel - Individual Transport Device
Camas, Wash.-based Inventist showed off Solowheel, a gyro-stabilized, single wheel, electric unicycle, at CES. Solowheel is capable of speeds up to 10 miles per hour and can run for 15-20 miles on a single charge of its lithium-ion battery. Users steer with their feet and accelerate by leaning forward. And like hybrid cars, Solowheel recharges its battery while slowing or moving downhill.
At $1,795, Solowheel is still on the pricey side, but it's a more compact alternative to the Segway that will likely come down in price as the technology matures.
