    Icon One wheel bike concept

    Sergey Kondratovich has made a concept of one wheel bike recently (http://serjjart.blogspot.com/2009/04/013.html ). This artwork has inspired me to do own experiment in styling of this futuristic vehicle. The bike keep balance by aerodynamic and electro-magnetic devices at bottom segment. Also it has extended “crutches” for parking in the same place.

    Probably yes, even with futuristic devices for balance. This is styling work in first.

    Not trying to attack your work, but how would it steer?

    It would be enough for a one wheel scheme to displace weight aside, but this bike is heavy and supporting electro-magnetic devices (orange luminescence below) can also do that to change vector.

    Hmmm I honestly dont see the point in even thinking about a one wheeler, when - as we have to in present case - we presume to have a theoretical magnetism device to make our vehicle hover above ground and keep levelled.
    That assumed it would be straight forward design to abandon any sign of wheeliness at all and rather optimise the hovering vehicles speeding, frictionlessness and driver/captain comfort etc.
