One-wheeled electric scooter that’s impossible to fall off?

The one-wheeled, battery-powered RYNO scooter can travel at a speed of up to 25mph and can be parked anywhere, free of charge, is a cross between a Segway and a mobility scooter that is apparently impossible to fall off.

It was designed by Portland-based RYNO Motors specifically for commuters to help beat the traffic and avoid expensive parking charges.

To drive the RYNO, the driver must lean forward to accelerate and backward to decelerate. The RYNO scooter is also fitted with self-balancing technology that means the scooter can automatically right itself if the driver leans too far to the left or right, or too far forwards or backwards

Similar to a Segway, to drive the RYNO the driver must lean forward to accelerate and backward to decelerate. However differing from a Segway the RYNO scooter is also fitted with self-balancing technology that means the scooter can automatically right itself if the driver leans too far to the left or right, or too far forwards or backwards

Weighing 57kg, the RYNO scooter can cope with slopes of up to 30 per cent. Its battery can be removed and plugged into electricity sockets to charge, taking around 90 minutes to fully charge the device.

As the RYNO is classified in the same group as mobility scooters, it can be driven in pedestrian areas and inside buildings.

On sale from August 2013, the RYNO will be priced around £2,250.
