Forget The Segway, The EniCycle Is One-Wheeled Fun We Could All Get Behind

By David Ponce

Or on top of, rather. The EniCycle is an a prototype self-stabilizing unicycle from Slovenian inventor Aleksander Polutnik. Featuring a three-hour battery, gyroscope and a spring damper, Polutnik claims a 30 minute learning curve. The video we’ve embedded after the jump shows UK “The Gadget Show” Ortiz Deley learning to ride the device. Within a few minutes he’s not falling off and actually steering.

Looks like some kind of fun, but sadly this isn’t a production device unless (like so many things) Polutnik finds some funding to market it. There are currently only two models he built himself.

    Just wonderful. Peats the pants off the Segway, that's for sure. Elegant, graceful, fun – I want one!

    Will most likely be riding my mountain bike to work for the first…. 60 days. Too bad these haven't become mainstream yet.
