Seriously, It's Time to Lean Into Monowheels


Seriously, It’s Time to Lean Into Monowheels

Call them fanciful, or a faceplant waiting to happen. But one-wheeled vehicles are how we’ll roll into the future.

For a brief moment in human history, we thought we knew how to make a vehicle. Stick a drivetrain in a frame, slap two to four wheels on it, and hop on. The resulting form factors—cars, bicycles, tricycles, mopeds—have worked for two hundred years, and much longer if you count the horse-drawn carriage among such devices.

But for some, it was never quite enough. There had to be a way to optimize the model even further. What if, stability be damned, we could travel on just one wheel alone?
