Beaverton, Oregon based firm RYNO Motors designs one-wheel, self-balancing all-electric a new kind of urban transportation product called 'RYNO'. It is designed for city errands, for commuting to work and for personal transportation where people need to move quickly and efficiently over short to medium distances. The RYNO is small enough to be brought into offices and elevators and it mingles well with pedestrians. To operate a RYNO, the rider must balance the RYNO from side to side in the same way as any other bicycle, but the forward and back balance is managed by the electronics on the vehicle. As a self-balancing form of transportation, the RYNO moves forward when a rider leans forward, and stops when a rider leans back. With a top speed of 10 miles per hour the RYNO is well suited for use in bike lanes and on sidewalks. It produces zero emissions, is easily charged in a normal AC outlet and costs under a penny a mile to ride. Initial pricing is expected to be $5,295 per cycle.
