Always on the 3-wheel agenda......

But will it do a wheelie?

I wish them well but am not optimistic about the consumer appeal, quite frankly.
There have been a number of very clever prone recumbents over the years, and despite having very technically-attractive vehicle layouts, none of them has ever approached sales success even among recumbents. A prone riding position is extremely uncomfortable for any length of time.

That looks like it would be insanely fun on the Talimena Scenic Highway in western Arkansas/eastern Oklahoma where they run gravity bikes and street luges over a 5 mile downhill course.
