Not sure if anyone here at Guydster would be able to ride the OneWheel competently, but the creators’ emphasis on its similarities to a hover-board does have us intrigued. Obviously the device doesn’t hover; though the comparison is drawn by how smoothly it rides. One big wheel in the center, hooked up to a special gyroscope and direct drive motor, makes the OneWheel an easy to pick up ride. It carves left and right like a snowboard; leaning forward to accelerate and back to brake or reverse. This Kickstarter campaign has already tripled its goal and you can get your own by pledging $1,299.
