The Orbis Urban Vehicle Will Slice Your Commute Time in Half

Segways can look kind of wimpy but the Orbis urban vehicle is all muscle. First off, this thing only rides on one wheel. And look at that wheel! It looks like a freakin' saw! This machine would definitely take some skill to ride. That being said, it is built on a system of gyroscopes, so it is not too easy to tumble over.

Designed by Christophe Suoto, the Orbis urban vehicle is not only a smart way to get around those congested city streets, it also looks like it would be pretty fun to ride. The problem with Segways is that they look like they're meant to support seniors, but this machine is definitely a young person's game.
