One of the latest products from the Inventist’s stable is the Solowheel-a self balancing electric unicycle that is also perhaps the world’s smallest and most environmentally friendly vehicle. Solowheel features a wheel and two foldable leg pads and uses gyroscope technology to help the driver control its speed by leaning forward or backward.

The unicycle is equipped with a 1000-Watt motor and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that reclaims energy when going downhill or slowing down, and lasts for two hours. Solowheel is extremely portable and can simply be folded and carried around, making it a very convenient vehicle that can be used anywhere.
