RYNO Motors   Micro Cycle Single Wheeled Personal Transport

In all honesty, we didn’t know what to make of http://rynomotors2.wordpress.com/” target=”_blank”>RYNO Motors Micro-Cycle when it first appeared. On one hand, it was the stuff of science fiction fantasy, a single wheel motorcycle powered by zero-pollutant electric motor. On the other hand however, it was just that, a stuff of sci-fi fantasy like flying cars, human-like robots, and teleportation. That was our mindset till a review by the good folks at http://engadget.com/2011/11/02/ryno-motors-self-balancing-single-wheeled-scooter-test-ride/” target=”_blank”>Engadget that made us thought otherwise. A product of engineer Chris Hoffmann’s endless tinkering, the RYNO Motors Micro-Cycle is just that, a small single wheel personal transport. With some control differences on its handlebar, the vehicle operates pretty much like a small scooter. To counter out the inherent imbalance, much of the powerplant is within the hub of the wheel. The massive tire along with a light weight design, at only 125-pound, help too. Meant for a top speed of 15 MPH, the Micro-Cycle still makes any mundane chore, like a milk run to the local supermarket, something fun. Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect though, Hoffmann wants to offer each unit at around $4,200 only. Currently in the early phase of finalizing production, RYNO Motors is set to launch the Micro-Cycle during the early part of 2012.

Beautiful machine and I love the idea. But what happens if you hit something? Will you pivot, head-butt the pavement and smash your cervical vertebrae a la Christopher Reeve? Needs a front airbag to prevent that IMHO. Perfect it and I'll buy one.

If you can get it to go at-least 35 to 45 mph, than you have a product that is marketable to everybody in the scooter market. Which is growing... for now. I am so impressed! I hope you can make this take off :)
