The Onewheel

Core 77 reports: [edited]

A self-balancing electric monowheel skateboard, the Onewheel seemingly replicates the feeling of riding around on a hoverboard (if not the form factor), and even a novice can purportedly pick up how to ride one in less than a minute; in addition to the self-balancing feature, riders can accelerate by leaning forward and slow down by leaning back, as with a Segway.

The 25-pound device will reach 12 mph, with a range of four to six miles. Charging the lithium battery takes from 20 minutes to two hours, depending on what type of charger you use.

Doerksen and his team have it up on Kickstarter, where it's already tripled its $100,000 goal.
