Meet the Self-Balancing Scooter/Unicycle Hybrid

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


The KO1 Electric Scooter is a unicycle/scooter hybrid that's perfect for taking a ride through the park. It has handlebars just like a typical scooter would, but it lacks the second wheel, hence why it's a unicycle hybrid.

Apart from looking unique, the personal vehicle also has lots of advanced technology built into it, like a stabilization system that ensures it always remains upright. It also features a smartphone app that allows the user to control the vehicle remotely.

Although one wheel might seem like a handicap, you'd be hard-pressed to get stuck with the KO1 because it sports a thick off-road-style tire that can handle grass, mud, and sand.

Worried about battery life? Well, the KO1 can cruise around at a top speed of almost 20 miles per hour and can last for a 20-mile ride before needing to be recharged again. That means it'll last one hour at top speed, or longer if you move slower.
