Remember the Enicycle? A company called Solowheel has taken the motorized unicycle idea one step further with its titular product, which combines gyro sensors with a 1,000-watt motor and can be carried like a briefcase (albeit a 20-pound one) when not in use.

One great thing about the Solowheel beyond its obvious function is that the battery, which will last for two hours, reclaims energy when going downhill or braking.

One sad thing: Apparently Johnny Hart’s not going to see one red cent of profit out of the Solowheel’s $1,000-plus price tag.
