Rolling Down The Hill

eRinGo is predictably this rotund vehicle that can go from a one-wheel car to a three-wheeler, depending upon the deep curves you wish to take. The main central wheel balances the car while in motion, and its panels house the electric motors and other machinery of the car. The two-seater has two steering wheels, allowing either of the drivers to take control. Naturally when one steering is being used, the other gets locked. Two smaller-side wheels get deployed intuitively to stabilize the car when parking or hitting the curves.

As a concept “Green” vehicle it looks neat in this round avatar, but will the design functionality actually work, we really can’t predict.

    Of course its encircled in big circles!

  • JasonWD says:

    This seems to be design for design’s sake.

  • John says:

    Wonderful! But seems too big.

  • ranjix says:

    yep. hate it. color, idea, size, looks. at this point I really don’t care if it works or not, hope it doesn’t. I tried to find something positive about it, sorry

  • tommyjj says:

    So what happens when you apply the brakes? If the brake pads are connected to the rest of the vehicle then slamming the brakes on will have no effect on velocity and just cause the whole thing (including the driver/rider) to barrel roll forwards down the road. The reverse would apply to rapid accelleration I imagine too!

      Haha that is so true!

    • vatsal says:

      dude …i dont get it …why do u have to be conventional about it …u can use different way of breaking and accelerating …??…neways …i dont like the design either…

  • tommyjj says:

    nice renders tho

  • Jox says:

    Hypershot German Dirt Road! xD

    I like this idea, which is more like for low cycle speed than a transportation vehicle. If you make it and it actually works, I will be surprised though. Driver needs to see behind him, so open the back somehow.

    All i can say is SOUTH PARK!

  • lazyviten says:

    what is the point to have one of this… it make u looks like aliens while u driving it out..
    I am a ET..dumb ass

  • surprised says:

    whats up with the comments?
    i don’t think this is design for design’s sake… it’s *seems* very functional in fact. look at the all the technology that goes into axels and controlling wheels these days. turns look to be very intuitive.

    sort of like a barrel; not sure how many technological issues it creates while replacing existing designs.

  • AL says:

    one of safest design everybody is trying, but in this case, ‘cept the danger of an inexpected blackout and roll like a squirrel inside, it has too friction in guides of wheels, don’t tell is magnetic, those wheels aren’t economically valid, not to speak about the rocker on sides, ancient lights, bad side design, vote -10 but +10 your engineering, continue!

  • DaLk says:

    Mmmmmmm’k. what happens when you brake ? car version of the ROFLcopter ?

  • Aron Rubin says:

    It beats what you have to go through at the airport

  • Hi guy’s,
    I thinks it look very Good but the problem is size is little large….

  • dae says:

    Ummm… Monowheel issues (not tipping while breaking etc) have all been dealt with by previous attempts, but one issue remains… How the hell is the driver meant to see? And video screens just won’t cut it.

  • steve says:

    what if there is only one person in this “car”? wouldn’t it slant to one side?

  • AndyL says:

    This thing is clearly a death-trap, but I want one anyway it looks like a blast to (try to) drive.

  • Jimmy C says:

    You know people, sometimes you really need to stop being sticks in the mud. I think it looks great and I would love to own one.

  • Freeman says:

    You aree so awesome! I don’t think I’ve readd a single thing like
    this before. So nice too find ankther person with genuine thoughts
    on this issue. Seriously.. many thanks for starting
    this up. This web site is something that’s needed on the web, someone with a little originality!
