Uno: Is it a unicycle or a motorcycle


We haven’t seen anything quite like this and we assume you also wouldn’t have seen anything as fresh and as outrageous a concept like the Uno. Remarkably, an eighteen year old inventor, Ben J. Poss Gulak has put the radical Uno together and true to it’s name, the Uno is a motorcycle that has only one wheel. Weighing just over fifty four kilograms, the single seater Uno has two gyros which you keep you planted to terra firma, a little similar to the Segways. To go forward on this outrageous one-wheeled contraption, you just need to shift your weight forward and to go back, do the same backward. And if you want to stop moving, just need to tilt backwards. For all this to happen, you have a single switch to control the gyros which are wired to a microprocessor. The microprocessor takes the gyro inputs and make the electric motor of the Uno respond accordingly. Though it looks a little bizarre, the Uno is a pretty cool concept but I’m pretty pissed off that i can’t wheelie it. Jokes apart, you can catch a glimpse at the Uno at the 2008 National Motorcycle Show in Toronto that is happening today and tomorrow.
