This sci-fi electric unicycle is the RYNO, a future-badass alternative to the Segway that looks like it got beamed down from the year 2114. But it's here, and it's real, and I got to ride it.
If the only thing stopping you from riding around town on a Segway is, well, looking like someone riding around town on a Segway, this enhanced version might make you a little less hesitant about being seen in public on one.

You might remember this post three years ago in which I laughed at a woman on a Segway pushing a baby stroller for being lazy. Well, I'm a giant asshole, and I want to apologize to Melissa Hofstetter. I'm sorry Melissa.
Since the GM EN-V debuted today, here's another balancing act which has caused furled brows over its necessity. The Taurus Concept is a compact, urban-targeted, open-top, saddle-ridden vehicle balancing on two wheels. Wait, isn't that a motorcycle?
Occasionally, we'll receive an e-mail into the tips line that makes us stop and think. Mailopnik lets us share some of the ones that don't, along with our response. First up: Cylon/Segway-lovers.
