Someone will probably one day make a personal transport vehicle like this that everyone uses.. perhaps they'll call it the 'bicycle'. Oh shi-

(Bicycle + Battery - Wheel = This)

I would be interested how this "transformer" gets light weight, battery life and stability out of this design. If successful, it sure looks like Segway 2.0. Nevertheless, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a light weight gyroscope that can balance a human being.

[citation][nom]marcus_br[/nom]Well, a Segwat costs 4500 USD. 30k x 4.5k = 135.000.000, much more than invested...[/citation]
Better check your math, that's 13,500,000.

135,000,000 not 13,500,000.
Oh man, that's embarrassing.

[citation][nom]gm0n3y[/nom]Uh, 30,000 x 4,500 = 135,000,000.[/citation]
Your right, my calculator didn't have enough zero's, LOL.

There's this awesome trick we learn around 4th grade...to just move 0's.
4500 x 30000 equals 45 x 3 plus 6 zeroes...which is 135.000.000

No need to use a calculator for such simple math...you're welcome :)
