4wheel drive/steering uni transport

Here’s a different kind of 4 wheel drive, 4 wheel steering unicycle vehicle.

The pictures are from the Jugglefest 2004 Public Show. This was the MC’s entrance at the beginning of the show.
(Sorry the pictures aren’t better; hope I can get a video clip from someone).

Wow, that looks like a load of fun! Was that just messing around or part of a competition?

Neither. It was the MC’s stage entrance (the very beginning of the festival’s public show).

Looks a bit like a roman emporer being carried in on a litter.

Perhaps for the next spoof…
