    Wheel of Future Fortune?


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     seeitnow says he is fascinated by alternative energy sources. However, he adds that he would never ride one of these; he compares it to a chainsaw. He says he figures you could learn to ride a manual unicycle (or cut down a tree with a saw) but adding motorized parts complicates things.

    By now we're all familiar with the various forms of electric  vehicles, including some bicycles. Taking this to it's logical endpoint,  Justin Lemire-Elmore has developed and tested the worlds first electric  unicycle. You'd be making a big mistake if you thought this was an  attention getting novelty toy because Justin is about to smash several  transportation records by being the first person to cross the United  States from Canada to Mexico on a unicycle, while using a power source  and motor that is not much bigger than your average home electric drill.
