Self Balancing ScooterAnyone who loves new technology and new kinds of transportation will be interested to try the latest development from the creator of the Segway, the electric unicycle.    This is essentially a type of electric powered scooter that has, as the name indicates, only one wheel.  The ability to balance on this particular unicycle does not require any kind of skill or special knowledge.

The best electric scooter uses a gyroscopic sensor to adjust the balance of the vehicle based on the rider’s position.  The scooter will keep you perfectly balanced even with subtle movements and will take into account center-of-mass calculations.  You can easily turn and accelerate the vehicle by leaning in different directions and it is small enough to fit in the back of a smart car.

The only downfall of this unique new invention is that the cost is more than the average person can afford with prices starting at $2700 for an electric unicycle.  It seems like the sale of this type of vehicle would be limited to those who can afford it and are interested in a performance scooter that uses new kinds of technology.  In spite of the cost it seems useful as a portable electric form of transport.
