With a crew of builders and engineers, inventor Ben J. Poss Gulak was able to make his vision of the Uno motorcycle a reality. This self-balancing bike is equipped with a pair of gyroscopes (a spinning wheel or disk that measures orientation) to maintain its self-balancing, upright position. The motorcycle weighs 120-pounds with a single on-off control switch.
So how exactly do you ride the Uno? All you have to do is lean in the direction you want the bike to move…to ride forward, lean forward. An important note would be that to increase or decrease velocity the rider simply needs to lean further forward or backward. It sounds easy enough…as long as the rider can control his movements.
