Audi Snook-The One-Wheeled Car With A Brain

Get out of the way, everybody! Here comes the one-wheeled Audi Snook. Maybe this auto-stabilized monowheel design concept isn’t such a bad idea, though, because it won German student Tilmann Schlootz a Michelin Challenge Design Award 2008 at this year’s Detroit Auto Show.

How the heck does this lightbulb-shaped vehicle with a trackball wheel underneath stay upright? “Agility through instability, controlled by artificial intelligence — that is my formal issue,” answers designer Schlootz. Looks like a carnival ride to us. Let’s hope that artificial intelligence does the driving, too. [via DVICE]
