On reading the article it seems that is you set the V8 tiltback to 25kph (only a few less than it can actually do) it would remain compliant. How do they test the max speed? Otherwise it is certainly small and light enough. It is a shame they won't let you on roads with it.

Yup. I'll be setting (via app) the max. speed of my wheels to 25 kph ... and pray it qualifies as a compliant device. I can only show my app's setting if asked for max. speed of device. However, based on the official document, it seems to indicate only a device's innate max. speed is 25 kph max. will be considered compliant. Whatever it is, I'll be trying my luck now with a 25 kph setting for both wheels and hope for the best. Regardless, it'll be so damn boring to cruise at that speed. Might as well ride bicycle. Even faster and can go onto the roads!

Then you can argue that cars are capable of illegal speeds, and cause a lot of deaths. Human powered bikes can go very fast too.

@dunkindonuts Have you seen electric unicycles.

They're looking really snazzy lately, like a cruller with sprinkles...

I was thinking you could take these to the next level with your donut technology . ?

More manufacturers should come up with custom shrink wrap themes for EUCs.

Treehugger linked to an Indiegogo film project on the future of transportation. Maybe someone from Bay Area can cameo; (just pledge $500).  ?

B-roll sample footage shows electric unicycle about 6 seconds in... Hopefully more footage will make it into the final documentary. :popcorn:

is that @Marty Backe?

:blink:  This "B Roll" footage was strange because in half the scenes traffic drove on the wrong side, including that guy masquerading as me ;)

      there's a bunch of kinds of now. sometimes you stand on little platforms on either side of the wheel and sometimes the wheel is in the middle of a skateboard and you stand it astride accordingly, and i hate them all irrationally b/c its always some dotcom booger on them

From a recent article at Curbed.com titled: Scooters could solve a big urban mobility issue—if startups listen

Quote

This country has become so desensitized to cars and all their negative impacts that when something else is introduced, it’s easy to fixate on—or make fun of—whatever is new.

E-unicycles are only mentioned indirectly while referencing the Have a Go website; which sells them apparently (links to ewheels if you want to buy some!). However, the article advocates various lightweight electric vehicles (LEVs) at a time when there appears to be something of a backlash going on within certain cities. :efeed51798:

For example Kingsong 16S got a max speed of 20 kmh out of the factory, right? Then it should be perfectly legal for as long as you don't use the app to unlock a higher speed. I think.

I would just tell the officer that the wheel is 20 kmh out of the factory. Which is the truth.
