InventHelp’s Invention Girl has a guess about what the young men in the family will want for Christmas this year: the Uno electric unicycle motorbike invention. Speed demons, thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies rejoice!

Ben Gulak, an 18-year-old inventor from Canada, developed the stunt bike. The speed and direction of the bike are controlled solely by the movements of the rider’s body. The invention’s maximum speed is 25 miles per hour, but Gulak speculates that higher speeds are possible with a bigger motor. To maintain balance, the bike is equipped with two gyroscopes, one designed for turning and one for forward/backward motion. A single switch turns the Uno on and off.

Like many aspiring inventors, Gulak is looking to bring his invention to the marketplace. Although I wish him the best of luck, I can say with certainty that you will not see InventHelp’s Invention Girl cruising around town on one of these. Call me old-fashioned, but I have a strict two-wheels-or-more policy on all modes of transportation!
