Solowheel unicycles are now cheaper and lighter, but still hard to tame

Solowheel unicycles are now cheaper and lighter, but still hard to tame | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

The new range of Solowheels start from a much lower price point than the original $1,995 version. First, we have the Spirit, which is essentially the original version modernized with a more stylish look, a more powerful 1,500W motor (instead of 1,000W) and better battery cells. It also packs new features like headlights, tail lights plus Bluetooth connectivity for tracking its speed, mileage and battery status in its upcoming mobile app and dedicated wearable device. Surprisingly, the Spirit only costs $1,199.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

One of the gadgets featured at Kinnernet Europe is now available in an updated range. As engadget writes, it's "like a Segway but sans handle and only with one wheel between your legs". Thx to Ch@rles for his patience in helping us test this.

Looks like the PDF link is not always working. Here is another one: http://www.spacex.com/sites/spacex/files/hyperloop_alpha-20130812.pdf
