    Who needs Segway when you have Honda U3-X

    It is still a prototype but it is very interesting.

    That's very cool.

    Here's another one-wheel approach:

    And although it's not a one-wheel vehicle, check out the fourth video down on that page. It's a helmet cam video of a guy going up to 300 kph (186+ mph) in traffic, including a couple 200 kph (124+ mph) wheelies.

    Yea, a few weeks ago I was traveling on the loop 202 with the family when some idiot on a croch rocket pulled a wheely while doing 70+ mph. he held it for at least a 1/4 mile.
