Self-balancing motorbike

New tech from Silicon Valley is basically a motorbike with two powerful gyros in it meaning it can still stay upright when stopped (while the driver stays fully enclosed).

Fully electric, fully enclosed, bike license required to drive/ride. Pretty awesome the way it stays up when dragged by the SUV (around the 1m55s mark).

Fairly impressive tech when it comes down to it! Not entirely sure I'd buy one of the first batch but still pretty neat. In pre-production at the moment, hoping to ship in 2014. What do you reckon?

Just gotta hope you don't run out of juice when stopped in traffic otherwise the gyros would just shut down!
