Yeah, that and the turtleneck gave it away. I'm just thinking that it'll be six years before we see US firms selling these, you know, after the Brits got all of the bugs ironed out.
I love how the rest of the world is our R&D department.
I Yike rape!

He doesn't pedal. How does it go? Where are the brakes? Are you supposed to ride on the sidewalk, or the street? Is it maneuverable? Would this work anywhere except when your two-story renovated condo loft is only two blocks from your repurposed warehouse graphic design studio?
RRRAAGGGHHH HIPSTERS MAKE ME SO ANGRY
This thing would fit under my desk at work and it looks fun.
Just wait until Waisters and Pelvisers start popping up.
There are still people that don't know what hipsters are roaming around this place.
In High School we had the Redneck Gangsters that weren't offended to be called "necksters".
I saw a hipster once, I was on a airplane during a storm. I was looking out the window and i could see its outline during lightning flashes. It was ripping apart the engine on the wing.
I for one welcome the resurgence of the penny-farthing. Even if in miniature.
Holy crap it's $4,500, I can get a razor electric scooter for like $80.
Rodents of Unusual Size
In all honesty, I see this idea as really taking off but not for maybe ten or twenty years.
I especially like the suggestion that this is somehow more resistant to crime than a regular bike. If you went into a hardcore ghetto with this thing, you would have a 40 oz bottle thrown at you within a couple minutes.
Considering I get tired carrying a laptop, I hate to think what a laptop, phone and bizarrely over engineered electric scooter would do to me.
Why all the hate? This looks neat
Also, "hipster" tends to mean "trust fund college student"
This screams yuppie more than anything thing else
Combines the speed and power of a Vespa, the safety of a unicycle and the cool stylings of a Segway, with the comfort of sitting bitch on a motorcycle - all for the low low price of a year's tuition!
The music just _screams_ hipster amiright.

This looks practical and highly useful.

Need either a "mister Garisson" or "CGI stink trail"
$4,500 electric unicycle, how could it fail?

Someone is going to lose a ton of someone else's money on this horrible idea.
I find the comments here far more interesting than the video itself. poeTV seems to be going through a transitional period right now.

I'd only consider this if there were a case that you could swing onto your back. Having something that big at your side would make walking and climbing trees so awkward.
Also, making this small also makes it easy to steal!
It looks neat but it also looks like it would cause one hell of a wedgie.
Which is neat beacause their target market probably got a lot of them growing up.
Just walk, it's less embarrassing.
reminds me of the George Costanza handicap montage.
The guy looks so unstable the whole time. The could at least make it look smooth in the commercial.
Yike Bike: Because the Segway just didn't look proper enough.

I could pee while riding this.
Oh you say that about everything. Remember when they revoked your buspass?
