Bombardier’s Embrio Advanced Concept is a one-wheeled recreational and commuting vehicle touted to offer a whole new experience on the road. The hydrogen fuel cell powered prototype features include infrared night vision, active suspension, sensors, and gyroscopes that can balance one or more passengers.
To move the Embrio, you use an accelerator trigger on the left handlebar and a brake trigger on the right. The Embrio was designed by Bombardier internal designers as a guess at what transportation in the year 2025 might look like.
The vehicle is made of lightweight materials, like aluminum, magnesium and nylon. It weighs 360 pounds. The Quebec-based company also builds Rotax karts, Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles, Bombardier ATVs, Sea-Doo sport boats and Johnson and Evinrude outboard engines. Some observers have speculated the Embrio could be a Segway killer, but the makers of Segway aren’t so sure.
For now the Embrio is just a concept, so you can put your credit card away.
