AirWheel X3, the uni­cy­cle for the zany com­muter

The e-pow­ered uni­cy­cle that speeds up your com­mute (no jug­gling re­quired)

Re­mem­ber when the Segway was hailed as the fu­ture of pedes­trian trans­port? Yeah, well, that may not have quite worked out, but AirWheelX 3 is much cooler in our hum­ble opinion. Trav­el­ling at speeds of up to 16km/h when you put your back into it, built-in gy­ro­scopes try to bal­ance you au­to­mat­i­cally, while the mo­tor cuts out if you tilt over 45 de­grees. The bat­tery’s good for 15km and takes just 45 min­utes to fully recharge, so you’ll be good for the shop­ping run, too. From US$629, aire­bike.com
