One-wheeled self-balancing skateboard

Self balancing one wheeled skateboard

Not strictly what we usually call a Unicycle but whilst browsing I came across an awesome homemade self-balancing skateboard.

It balances on a single wheel using Segway / Eunicycle style control electronics. It steers by leaning, similar to a snowboard or a skateboard. How cool is that?

There’s a cool YouTube vid linked from the guy’s page, as well as some details of how he built it.


I’ve wanted to make a BC wheel just like that, except without the motor of course. I wouldn’t mind going around on one of them, beats a normal morotised scooter.
