But unlike either, there's little balancing required: A gyroscope and accelerometers help keep a rider upright. Leaning forward accelerates the electric bike to speeds up to 10 mph."

• 6 hour charge time

• Custom steel framed LED headlights

A living chicken. That beats a dead duck and four of a kind!

Bike? Well, it's only one wheel, and 'bike' comes from latin, bi, meaning 'two'. So it's more of an 'Ike', or maybe a 'Uke'?
I've been watching the development of this thing for several years now, and like the Moller Aircar, it always seems to be a theoretical thing that might just advance past prototype stage one day. But I still can't see how, even at only ten mph, it can safely come to a rapid stop without a major faceplant. I'll be sticking to multiple wheels.

Interesting, the other videos on youtube seem to show him standing up when it get a little speed going. I wonder about that. Me, I like my four wheels surrounded by steel, call me chicken.
