John Dingley, the guy behind last year’s electric luge, has been in the workshop again. This time he’s been working on a new version of his self-balancing electric unicycle. Similar to the Ryno, but home built and using a brushless motor.
A cylindrical aluminum tube up top acts both as seating for the rider and home to the battery pack, which is made up of 20 LiFePO4 cells. The torpedo-like tube is ended with a jet intake from an old aircraft, while the unicycle’s self-balancing electronics have been squeezed into a Ural motorcycle headlamp pod from the 1950s.
