Someone at the Canadian company Bombardier Recreational Products was thinking way outside the box when they created this futuristic Embrio Advanced Concept one-wheel motorcycle. This unicycle-on-steroids concept is powered by hydrogen fuel cell and gives a glimpse of what the future of transportation may look like in the year 2025.
The Embrio Advanced Concept oddly enough is designed to fit two people and the driver can turn left or right simply by shifting their weight. The one-wheel motorcycle is equipped with gyroscopes and sensors to help maintain balance while on the road. At slow speeds (about 12.5 mph) those funky front wheels descend on the vehicle, sort of like landing gear for an airplane, to help the gyroscopes and passengers with the balance of the motorcycle.
The accelerator for the Embrio Advanced Concept is one the left handlebar while the brake is on the right side. At 360 pounds, the one-wheeled Embrio Advanced Concept was designed using magnesium, aluminum and even nylon.
Now, its hard to envision the Embrio Advanced Concept on the open road riding next to Harley Davidsons and whatever other vehicle will still be around in 2025. More likely it could be an advanced trick vehicle for skateboarders who want to move up in RPMs. But, nonetheless, kudos to Bombardier for their outside-the-box thinking and daring to dream of new and inventive methods towards a zero emissions future.
