Coworker brought his into work. Really big building. It made getting around extremely convenient, particularly when carrying cups with liquids. (The alternative are these Razor kick scooters which I seem to be unable to use one-handed...)
@liekensk If you fight pushback, you can defeat it for a few seconds and the board accelerates forward extremely fast. It can be scary, but usually the board will start to win again. Don't fight pushback.
@Abe good questions. I don't fully understand how it works.
I'm guessing that the tail will go up or down based upon your center of gravity when slowing down.
If you are already leaning back riding pushback, slowing the wheel might make you tale slide.
But if you are more level I would imaging slowing the wheel would send you forward for a nose dive.
Yes, I have been assuming there is another angle control mechanism which plays a part.
I started thinking about this because the wheel is locked or stiff when it is on but you are not riding it.
All I can say is that there has to be a lot of math that goes into the algorithm.
Nice bags, guys! I'm considering getting one as well. Is there enough room to put clothes in and use the clothes as padding, this way I can actually use it as a carry on and not need separate luggage for clothes?
@kianav2497, at this point making sure you are successful in life is your highest priority. Fitst make sure you are passing your classes, then if you have attention and money available for something fun, get a onewheel.
@sidebox I agree... my riding is sooo much more enjoyable with music playing.
I got these bone conductive (non-in-ear) bluetooth headphones on sale at Best Buy last week:
AfterShokz - Bluez 2 Behind-the-Neck Bluetooth Headphones - Black http://www.bestbuy.com/site/aftershokz-bluez-2-behind-the-neck-bluetooth-headphones-black/9347004.p?id=1219405800081&skuId=9347004
And I'm really liking them a lot.
I find them extremely comfortable because they sit on my cheek, not in my ear, they fit below my helmet, I can still hear my surroundings (if I don't turn them up too loud), and they're really easy to just push a button on and turn off to talk to gawkers.
The sound quality isn't super-awesome, but it's not bad either, and mostly I just need the sound to keep me happy and "in the groove".
Seems like a software change that gives you a fraction of a second leeway off the pad might prevent some of these crashes. Or, maybe a software change where a foot of the pad at speed the board slows a little more progressively at first - perhaps some pushback to aid the rider in getting their sensor foot back down.
