I can't remember, but I seem to recall the word "flight" in it.
Googling images of Airwheel, it wasn't quite like that, though the principle is the same.450-3.jpgThe one I saw had the tyre more exposed and didn't look so sleek.
The point is though, why not make these things legal?
I know they can't be because the existing regs don't cover that sort of thing. If you can have a mobility scooter, why not other powered devices?
Once again: Brakes?
I doubt you'd ever get something without brakes accepted regardless of anything else.
Both are legal for use on the roads.
The issue is mechanically propelled vehicles needing type approval.
Bikes need brakes because they are classed as carriages.
Roller skates don't, because they aren't.
