Unlike its two-wheeled cousin, the unicycle has pretty much been ignored in terms of advancements. No real unicycle revolution has come about since its (debated) debut in the 1800s.
Well, until today.
MIT Student Stephan Boyer has engineered an electric self-stabilizing unicycle. Only slightly larger than its forefather, Boyer’s creation, dubbed the ‘Bullet’, can clock up to 15 miles per hour, but needs to be recharged every 5 miles. Boyer demonstrates the Bullet below though his dorm hallway and as you can see, the Bullet keeps true to the simplistic design of a traditional unicycle, but its much, much cooler.
Unfortunately for all of us newly-interested unicyle enthusiasts, Boyer tells physorg.com that he has no plans on bringing the Bullet to market and is just settling for being awesome. You can learn more about the Bullet & beg Boyer for a spin here.
