  1. Hi all, I am new to this forum and this strange fascination, so I thought I might provide some background. A couple of years ago, on my way to a boat show, I stopped in disbelief at the roped-off part of the parking lot. I couldn't believe my eyes: here were people (or maybe robots or remote-control show-room dummies ?) gliding around without any apparent body movement ! As I watched closer, I saw they were standing on some kind of car battery sized box mounted on a single tyre, very strange. It turned out they were real people, demoing and selling a novel transportation method, allegedly easy to store on boats and fun to use in and around marinas. After I waited and watched, this guy asked me if I wanted to try. Yes, for sure, and I felt both elated and a bit ashamed of being walked like a dog, astraddle a one-wheeled car battery with encouragement of skimpily clad members of the opposite sex. The magic evaporated when we got to the little matter of price, no way I could spend more than 1500 € on something I wasn't sure I could either master physically or justify as a worthwhile investment. Fast-forward to last Saturday, the local supermarket has this parking-lot clearance sales with lots of stuff to look thru. I guess the boat show test ride somehow rewired my reptilian brain as I can not remember anything except coming back home with a unexpected piece of alien technology. Alien ? Star Trek for sure. When I try to get on top of the box, I really need to Klingon. It also gives a new insight to the standard Klingon greeting of "Today is a nice day to die." I have tried voice control, thought control, nothing works except the exquisite, detailed and (mostly) learned advice on this wonderful forum. Thanks, I will experiment and report back when I have something worthy of mention... Here are the specs and a picture, please don't laugh...
