Brilliant! I can't wait to see a street full of yuppies, blondes and
the elderly all whizzing around carrying briefcases, boxes of primed
mousetraps, subway sandwiches and scalding hot coffee trying to avoid
one another. Should be hilarious. Of course, the design will have to
evolve with the passengers. Eventually, their legs will wither away
and the robot unicycle will need a six inch length of broomstick
sticking out of the top to accommodate the rider who will continue to
ride with a faraway grin...
