If you are in the market for a small personal vehicle for the last mile commute or to navigate around the grounds of your house, the SoloWheel Hovertrax might be worth more investigation and is currently on sale at just under $1000.
The SoloWheel Hovertrax takes the form of a two wheeled self balancing board that is controlled in the similar way to that of a Segway, by leaning your weight forward or backwards to control the speed.
Josh Constine over on the Tech Crunch website was able to put the unique personal vehicle through its paces at this years CES 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas explaining:
“The tilt-based controls were surprisingly reactive and I didn’t want for more power. Still, I don’t think any amount of riding would make you feel like you weren’t about to faceplant. Standing up straight and forward seems like too precarious of a position to ride safely around traffic or any kind of ground turbulence.”
