Wheels

The Elegance of Single-Wheeled Vehicles

I’m surprised that there’s not more single-wheeled vehicles out in the world.

Here are some things I like about things with one wheel:

  • single point of contact with the ground

    • insane turning radius
  • smaller number of parts

    • cheaper
    • easier to fix
  • smaller

    • easier to carry
    • take up less space when parked/stored
    • can fit more easily in “primary” modes of transportation
  • aesthetics
