The Olympic Ceremony Monowheel is a one-wheeled mobile celebration of life

Because life is a sport you’re winning a day at a time, duh

Someone made the monocycle from MiB 3?

Nope, this is much closer to real life. Do you not remember seeing this in action at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics?

What can a monocycle do that a bicycle can’t?

Is a motorbike cooler than a car? If you’ve answered yes to that, you obviously agree that when the number of wheels are halved on a vehicle, its cool factor doubles.

More after the break...

No, seriously

While your line of vision might be somewhat obscured by the massive wheel orbiting you, whatever annoyance you feel will be dimmed by the fact that a braided tube of LED lights connect the inner and outer wheels. So to answer your question, the Olympic Ceremony Monowheel will bring the light to anyone’s path you might cycle across.

Can your bicycle do that? No, but you can add these brilliant brake lights to your bicycle.

No, but -

No buts! This festive monocycle is a breeze to operate, just lean in the direction you want to go, put your feet down when you want to stop. When life has got you down, a few spins in this will cheer you - and the people around you - up real quick.

What’s the price of being a street spectacle?

Just US$7000 (S$8800). It’s not street legal though, so just ride it around your backyard should you desire the partial hamster-ball experience. If you can afford this novelty, you should be living in a McMansion anyway.
