Be Your Own ‘Lectric Achilles!

2004 is the year of the senseless electric vehicle, and here’s another entry into the class: the Easy Glider, which is an electric monowheel that drags the rider (?) behind it, traveling 15-20 miles on a charge. Designed primarily to pull people wearing roller blades or riding a skateboard, it can also be fixed with the “Char” (I’m not kidding), a two-wheeled platform reminiscent of a chariot. Imagine the fun you could have on one of these having races around the parking lot at work — especially if you used office chairs instead of roller blades! Cost is around $1000, with the first units arriving in Europe late this summer, arriving in the US probably never.
