British-made device is hoping to change the way people get around.
A Uniwheel is a 'rideable' electric transporter which has only one wheel and the makers claim it can navigate urban environments more comfortably than popular two-wheeled rivals, sometimes nicknamed 'hoverboards'.
On one fully charged battery pack the Uniwheel can go for up to 11 km or 6.8 miles. However, with the swappable batteries the range becomes unlimited.
Once mum has driven to school and picked up the kids because we can't let them walk home, they sit down in front of a computer screen or games console for hours before bedtime instead of going out to play some high activity games with friends.
As a nation we're spending more time on the couch watching endless drivel on TV and less time at the gym exercising. Our diets which once had proper home cooked meals with fresh fruit and vegetables now consist mainly of junk and processed food.
We've become lazy and physical activity has gone out of fashion. This device is just what we need right now!
