Egg-shaped one person ‘scooter’

E4U

(From Daily Mail) Hyundai has designed a bizarre egg-shaped concept vehicle, offering a new line in travel for commuters.

It works like the lower half of a ball and is used for propulsion instead of wheels.

The driver stands on a small platform and directs the vehicle by tilting it so that different sides of the semisphere contact the ground.
