Each one of these "balancing vehicle" creations is novel and unique. Over a period of a decade, many models have already been built, tried, and successfully tested!
Imagine the addition of an elegant CHARIOT to travel to-and-fro in, and have at festival events!
This is not your typically-operated vehicle, though. It travels much like the motion of a clock escapement mechanism in a grandfather clock.
The runner/driver of this balancing rickshaw gets their own weight lifted up by the weight of the cargo.
A "rolling teeter-totter", no less! Instead of a driver weighing 170 pounds, now they weigh 50 pounds, and are able to make 15-20 ft. leaps while operating this vehicle!Woody Harrelson climbs-in for a ride at the 2004 Film Festival in Woodstock, NY! This shows the capability of how much weight can be moved with hardly any effort!
Here is a true 'Conservation-of-Momentum' mobile!
