    It worked fine for me, it's a electric self balancing unicycle that you ride.

    Gyro stabilize it so you do not fall over. Last I heard Honda holds the patent on inner wheel gyro systems like the bikes in tron.

    According to the spec sheet, I'd never fit. I'm too tall, and weigh too much.
