This unicycle mechanism is built in skeleton steampunk style, which means that you can see and enjoy the beauty of the drive. The mono wheel is equipped with an original gearbox, which was inspired by its predecessors from the 1860s: a movable outer element with a stationary mechanism inside.
The mechanism parts imitate a real steam engine. The lack of an outer shell provides easy access to rubber bands when you need to replace them. Two working modes guarantee even more fun. Mode one with the locked feet gives you uninterrupted straight rolling for about 1.5-2 meters until the resource of the rubber band motor is fully released. Then the model turns gracefully and stops. The second mode, with your feet in the unlocked position, will roll your mono wheel forward while the rubber band motor is working. Then it turns around, its feet hide inside and the model continues rolling until it runs into an obstacle. In this mode, the model can cover up to 5 meters, which inspired us to play mechanical bowling with our new model as a bowling ball. We recommend this new sport to all of our friends!
