A two-wheeled, self-balancing car
Described as a "motorbike-car"
hybrid, the Lit C-1 two wheeler uses a set of futuristic electronic
gyroscopes to ensure it remains upright and balanced, similar to the
technology used by Segway scooters and the recent Honda UNI-CUB.
The technology allows drivers to
sit and use a steering wheel, as in a car, but allows the C-1 to stay
perfectly balanced, even at slow speeds or a standstill. Gyroscopes, which harness the
unique propensity of a spinning flywheel to stay upright, have been used
for some time for stabilization, including on aircraft and on cruise
ships to reduce roll caused by waves.
