The head-on collision between a Segway and a monocycle in the brain of one Brazilian designer results in the NOAH concept vehicle, a slick-as-shit, Tron-esque cycle for the future. Marrying a top-mounted seat with a traditional monocycle would quickly lead to a glistening smear of spinal fluid trailing slug-like down the freeway, but the NOAH is not a real monocycle — it has two closely mounted wheels, which act as stabilizers in turns. Speed, braking and turning is controlled Segway-style through pitching, leaning and shifting.
I always feel rather apologetic about posting concepts, since they are usually wishful thinking based upon Foundation-era technology and fueled by pixy magic, but I really like this one. The world could use a Segway aimed at an audience more speed-thirsty than the local mailman, a flabby rent-a-cop and The Woz.
Update: Reader SD reminds us in the comments that, while not the same bike, there's already basically a working prototype of this concept in the Uno.
