The maker of the Solowheel describes how it works!

Inventors have come up with a motorised unicycle and demonstrated it at a new technology show in Birmingham.

The Solowheel, which costs almost £2,000, can travel at speeds of up to 12mph and is unique, according to the company that makes it.

A series of gyroscopes is designed to keep the single-wheel vehicle upright.

To control it, the rider stands on footplates and leans in the direction they want to travel.
