    A Foldable Sk8nHopper and One-Wheeled Balancing Chariot

    I have a vehicle design that could go right along with a car(e)-free theme! And I've coined the term Sk8nHopper, which is what I'm calling this future work of 'kinetic sculpture' art

    Aside from the fact that a one wheeled vehicle is a cool idea and with modern computer stabilization technology, possible; how does it benefit us?

    If yoy do not understand it you do not need it. What sort of answer do you expect? Some peopel would ask the same about a regular bike. For sure it is workout for the whole body, not just the legs.

    You are right, I do not understand it. That's why I asked a question. If I expected a certain answer, then there would be no point in asking the question.

    What the OP proposes is similar to a unicycle or a monocycle. I'm just hoping he will elaborate on his idea.

    It is a just-for-fun idea. If you don't think it's fun, it's not for you. It's pretty goofy and I can't say if anyone will ever build it, but it's a fun idea nonetheless.
