*Click on video above to veiw the Solowheel in action
Transportation history in a nutshell:
â€¨â€¨-4000 BC: Invention of the wheel
â€¨-1866: Invention of the unicycleâ€¨
-2001: Invention of the Segway
Of course this leaves out automobiles and exotic rental cars…and now in 2011, we are faced with the Solowheel, a miniature Segway-style contraption that promises to keep people from being as active as they could be. Points for laziness.
Available for pre-order now, the Solowheel weighs in at around 20 pounds, and can be carried like a briefcase. Want to look interesting en route to your next meeting, or ridiculous scaling an airport? Here is your ticket.
This would also make a 007-style method for a quick escape, although an Aston Martin rental is more likely to get you the girl. Overall, it looks fun, but I foresee many frivolous lawsuits and broken bones. Thoughts, comments, problems?
