Solowheel: Look Like a Tool Even Before Eating the Pavement

The only thing that could possibly make this guy look more like an idiot is if he unloaded that stupid rolling disk from his sweet, bronze Accord.

The brain trust at Inventist (also behind uncool gadgets like the stepster, the orbitwheel, and the leantisserie) announced they'll be bringing the solowheel, aka the uni-cycled Segway without a pole, to market at the beginning of March.

According to the company, the Solowheel is the "smallest, greenest, most convenient People Mover ever invented" and is "more compact and fun to ride than any folding electric bike!"

And you know how fun electric bikes are to ride ...

One battery-operated wheel, two lean-sensitive pegs, and $1,500 later, you too can pick up a sweet one-way ticket to forever singledom.
