The future of personal transport may be here in what is best described as a cross between a Segway and a unicycle.

The electric RYNO scooter has a handlebar like a motorcycle, but has the seat directly over the single wheel.

The RYNO scooter claim it said to be virtually impossible to fall off, as it has software that stabilizes it when it is leaning too far to the right or left.

The battery-powered RYNO scooter can zoom at speeds up to 25 mph and can be charged fully in 90 minutes.

The RYNO can drive up slopes with 30 percent inclines and can be parked wherever you go, as the 57 kg RYNO scooter can be parked anywhere free of charge.

The RYNO scooter was designed by Portland-based RYNO Motors for those who want to avoid traffic and expensive parking charges. This vehicle is to the Segway in the sense that it requires the rider to lean forward to accelerate, and backward to decelerate.

How did the idea come about? The daughter of RYNO CEO Chris Hoffmann saw a one-wheeled motorbike in a video game and asked her father to make one for her to ride to school in 2009.

Now, the girl’s dream is becoming a reality.

“With a product like RYNO, a rider can slip behind a wall, cut up the alley, around behind the big oak tree, down though the park and emerge at a destination long before anyone driving a car could ever get there,” Hoffmann said.

“Plus a RYNO can be parked anywhere a bike can be parked, free of charge.”

Would you ditch traditional transportation methods in favor of a RYNO scooter?
