Forget the folding bike and even the Segway! FIREWHEEL reimagines urban commuting as an even more compact, less-is-more way to zip around the city. The design utilizes state-of-the-art gyroscopic technology to support and balance the user on a single wheel, encased in a rigid body with foot platforms at either side. Simply by leaning forward or backward, users can control acceleration, deceleration, braking. To control direction, just lean in the manner you would a bicycle. Get to your subway or bus station almost effortlessly and then carry it on without any major folding with just a grab of its nifty handle!
