Browsing through old photo archives we stumbled upon an image of a fun and smart transport device invented in the beginning of the 20th century. This was a single wheel accommodating one passenger-driver who looked so pleased with himself sitting inside his curious device that we couldn’t help but design one for our collection. We extended our research to find out more about single-wheel mechanisms and found ones that had no operator at all, developed as war machines and all covered in armor. What really inspired us was a similar approach to the transmission employed in all the prototypes starting in the 1860s: a moving outer element with a stationary mechanism inside.
