Solowheel

Shane Chen certainly did not invent the wheel, but he has just redesigned it! The Solowheel, which is defined as a self-balancing electric unicycle, represents indeed a different way to travel. In the same way as the Segway, its operation is very simple, playing on the inclination of the body. To move forward, you will have to look very slightly forward in the opposite direction and you can also to slow or stop as well as turn left or right.


Solowheel

A pale copy of the Segway, some would say? This is not exactly true. The Solowheel is distinguished first of all, as its name indicates, by the presence of a single wheel on both sides of the user's feet, which are placed on small platforms. In addition, this machine, developed by Inventist, based in Washington State, does not carry a handlebar.

This offers it at the same time a little fun side, with a stature of the user that seems to glaze on the ground. If having the arms along the body at all times may also recall the aspect of a lost penguin on the ice, this may have been something intentional in the mind of the designer during the development of Solowheel. In order to reduce the maximum impact on global warming, the materials used were not randomly selected, but they were carefully selected in order to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible.

The Solowheel is quite small in size (46 cm wide 54 cm high) and weight (11 kg). This is perfect for you to be able to carry it everywhere with you, from the bus to the elevator. All you need to do in order to carry it around is to lift it with the handle located at the top. In fact, this means of transport is perhaps the easiest on to use you have ever tried.


B. C Comics
On the pro side we can count the fact that this is a green means of transport, is definitely faster than walking and in the long run it will save you money on fuel. You will also be able to avoid congestion charges and travel with a speed of up to 20 miles / hr. The Solowheel is easy to ride and it charges very quickly. The main downside of purchasing a Solowheel may be the price, but in the long run you will be saving money, so it is worth a shot.
