One-wheeled electric scooter leaves the Segway in its dust

The Segway is a symbol of the unhip and nerdy, even though it is a pretty impressive piece of technology. But this similarly self-balancing scooter from Ryno Motors? It's quite the opposite.

Sure, it looks like half a motorcycle, but this one-wheeled contraption is actually pretty awesome looking. And it's quite impressive to see someone scooting around on a single wheel so comfortably. Even so, the chances of this catching on any better than the Segway did are probably slim to none.
