Uno Cycle - Bringing Cool to Electric Rides

Okay, The Author is impressed. Way impressed. In fact, faith in the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the human race has been restored. Why? How? Just check out Ben Gulak's new Uno-Cycle. Now this is totally, stupid cool.

An electric, Segway-like gyroscopically controlled Uno-Cycle that reaches cruising speeds of up to 15 MPH. Yea, that's what I'm talking about. That's twice as fast as the Segway. Thanks to Larissa at The Raw Story for running the Chicago Trib piece on this awesome piece of work. Read the story and check out another pic here. I want one. And I want all the masses in congested Chinese, Indian and American cities to have one. The sooner, the better. Props to Ben and to MIT for recruiting this 19-year-old visionary.
