I spent one entire Christmas vacation trying to master riding a unicycle by riding (crashing) from doorway to doorway in my house. I'm surprised my parents didn't kill me. I think, by day five, they were close. Compared to conventional unicycling, the EniCycle looks like an absolute walk in the park.

Designer Aleksander Polutnik has coupled a 1000 watt motor with gyroscopes similar to those found in a Segway and stuck in a computer that measures your vertical angle 100 times a second, keeping you balanced and upright. Steering is achieved through pushing on the pedals with your feet.

At this point, he has constructed only two prototypes, but he is actively looking for backers to help him with mass production. Sign me up. via gizmodo
