I tried riding my home made 'segway' by sitting a chair on the platform. That was hard enough!

You know, for a while now I wanted to try making a single-wheeled Segway. I don't see why you'd need two wheels side-by-side except for static stability.. if you kept it moving you should be able to ride a single-wheeler just like a unicycle.

Obviously it's not going to be particularly easy to ride, but I'm attracted to minimalism.. I even bought myself one of these last year! (Which is ridiculously difficult to ride I must admit..)
