The RYNO is an eco-friendly scooter which is unique in the sense that it runs on a single wheel and wont let you fall , says its inventors.
It can reach at the speed of 10mph and lasts 10 miles on one charge so can be used for short distance or inner-city travelling. It has a Self-balancing Technology which makes sure the driver doesn’t fall .Another advantage is that the scooter is compact in size so can be parked anywhere .What do you get when you cross a Segway and a mobility scooter? The electric RYNO scooter that is apparently impossible to fall off.
The $5300 one-wheeled, battery-powered scooter is very unique in design and reminds us of some sci-fi movies.
Its inventors claim you can even ride it into a lift and spin round – although don’t mention quite what your fellow lift inhabitants would say.
Designed by Portland-based RYNO Motors specifically for commuters with the motive to help beat the traffic and avoid expensive parking charges.
‘The RYNO isn’t about owning the road – it’s about sharing the pathways and byways that move a little bit slower but get you there in about the same time and a lot less stressed,’ the firm says.
HOW TO RIDE RHINO:-
The RYNO works like a Segway – the driver must lean forward to accelerate and backward to decelerate.
But unlike a Segway, the RYNO scooter is also fitted with self-balancing technology that means the scooter will automatically right itself if the driver leans too far to the left or right, or too far forwards and backwards.It weighs 57kg and can cope with slopes of up to 30 per cent gradient.
The firm boasts it can be ridden anywhere – even into lifts.
‘Cars, scooters and even typical two-wheeled bicycles are confined to the road.
‘The RYNO – at less than half the length of a bicycle – fits where you stand, and can pivot 360 degrees on a vertical axis.
‘Ride into an elevator, spin around, press the floor button, and then effortlessly back up like any other person on foot.’
The idea for the scooter came from the daughter of the firm’s CEO Chris Hoffmann in 2009.
She had seen a one-wheeled motorbike in a game she was playing and asked her Dad to make one for her to ride to school.
Hoffman said: ‘With a product like RYNO, a rider can slip behind a wall, cut up the alley, around behind the big oak tree, down though the park and emerge at a destination long before anyone driving a car could ever get there.
The designers also claim it can be taken on trains and driven through pedestrianised areas and shops in the same way mobility scooters can.
Its inventors add: ‘Or simply ride the RYNO through a lobby and up the elevator to your own apartment.’
Although the RYNO reaches speeds of 25mph, it is regulated when being driven in cities and towns to 10mph.
The RYNO’s battery can be removed and be plugged into electricity sockets to charge.
The company claims it takes around 90 minutes to fully charge the device.
We believe that we are creating future and sci-fi stuffs are now no more confined to fiction movies but are getting realized in our daily life .Lets hope we will some day make this one wheeled scooter run at a speed of 50 mph and wont need to charge daily .
