Solowheel Iota: A Mini Personal E-Vehicle

Solowheel Iota

Solowheel Iota is a very small self-balancing personal electric vehicle from the creators of the Solowheel and Hovertrax – the original hoverboard.

Solowheel Iota, is one of the smallest, greenest, most convenient e-vehicle ever invented. The Iota is birthed from an extended look into the human dynamics of different standing positions and wheel arrangements. Adopting a lower, two-wheeled stance relative to the Hovertrax and Solowheel, Inventist were able to find compromise between both worlds, making a device that is easy to learn and more versatile than the Hovertrax.
