The one-wheel scooter

I remember trying to build such a thing in a game called Garry’s Mod some time ago, and it was a total fail. It seems that reality provides better physics :D.

It has the following specifications:

Range: Up to 48 km

Max Speed: 40 km/h
Recharge Time LiFePo4: 1 ½ hours
Tire Diameter: 25”
Weight of Bike: aprox 57 kg
Footprint: 16” x 34”
Max Hill Incline: 30%
Max Rider Weight: aprox 113 kg
Turning Radius: Zero to 3 ft.
Estimated Retail Cost: $3,500

Although it’d be fun to have one of these, it just doesn’t worth it. It’s not practical! And that’s not because of it, but because of the price. Seriously, you can get a very nice 2nd hand car for that price. I really hate the current world situation: a lot of us want more eco-friendly vehicles, and they’re actually being developed, but at such a price that customers will turn their back and search for something that… well… isn’t eco :).
