Riders try out Uniwheel, a British-made electric unicycle

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.

full story


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!

Let's buy Kenny one of these Wheels for Xmas.

Little Man in the Computer:
The LMC model is based on the concept of a little man shut in a closed mail room (analogous to a computer in this scenario). At one end of the room, there are 100 mailboxes (memory), numbered 0 to 99, that can each contain a 3 digit instruction or data (ranging from 000 to 999). Furthermore, there are two mailboxes at the other end labeled INBOX and OUTBOX which are used for receiving and outputting data. In the center of the room, there is a work area containing a simple two function (addition and subtraction) calculator known as the Accumulator.............................

On my computer screen Kenny is only 15mm across, the Wheel woiuld help him to get around The Weekly Gripe.

He's lucky I'm stuck in a 48k spectrum
