The innovative self-balancing two-wheeled Uno 3 scooter began as a high school science fair project and now it has gone into production and can be pre-ordered from BPG Motors. The Uno 3 combines the reduced parking footprint of a Segway with all the benefits of a conventional motorcycle.
The Uno 3 can balance solely on its rear wheels in “Uno mode,” enabling unmatched nimbleness with an extremely tight turning radius. This alone will make it ideal for urban settings. When higher speeds are needed, the middle wheel can drop down in front and the outer wheels shift backwards transforming the Uno 3 into a full street bike.
Inspired by the congested streets of China, the design not only makes it collapsible to allow it to fit easily into an elevator, but the Uno 3 also produces zero tailpipe emissions.
