RYNO: from video games to reality

RYNO_front
Come definire questo mezzo che pare uscito direttamente da un film di fantascienza? Il RYNO è una moto con una sola ruota, un monociclo a motore… Il RYNO è semplicemente il RYNO, la definizione tecnica la fornisce la casa nella scheda tecnica con: micro-cycle. Nato quasi per caso prendendo spunto da un videogioco e sviluppato in sette anni fino a diventare una realtà. Sicuramente è l’estrema sintesi di quello che potrebbe essere il mezzo di trasporto individuale urbano: compatto, agile ed ecologico. Infatti il RYNO è un mezzo elettrico che si muove su di una sola ruota grazie ad un sofisticato sistema giroscopico, un accelerometro ed un sensore di movimento, non c’è sterzo, in realtà il RYNO percepisce i movimenti del conducente e reagisce di conseguenza. Può percorrere fino a 24 km con una sola ricarica delle due piccole batterie nascoste all’interno della ruota assieme al motore. Le batterie possono anche essere rapidamente e facilmente estratte e sostituite se non si ha il tempo di caricarle. Può portare fino a 118kg e raggiunge una velocità di 16 km/h. Se state cercando un mezzo per muovervi agilmente in città il RYNO potrebbe essere la soluzione. La RYNO Motors lo produce in Oregon (USA) e lo vende a 5295$ (circa 4200 euro).


How to define this ride that seems straight out of a sci-fi movie? This RYNO is a motorcycle with only one wheel, a mono-cycle … The RYNO is simply the RYNO, definition is provided by the builder in the datasheet with: micro-cycle. Created almost playing and inspired by a video game it was developed in seven years to become a reality. Surely it is the extreme synthesis of what could be the individual urban transport device: compact, agile and environmentally friendly. In fact, the RYNO is an electric vehicle that moves on a single wheel thanks to a sophisticated gyroscopic sensor, an accelerometer and a motion sensor, there is no steering, the RYNO perceives the rider movements and reacts accordingly. Can travel up to 15 miles on a single charge of two small batteries hidden within the wheel assembly to the engine. The batteries can also be quickly and easily removed and replaced if you do not have the time to charge them. Can carry up to 260 lbs and has a top speed of 10MPH. If you are looking for a way to move nimbly in the city RYNO could be the solution. The RYNO Motors produces in Oregon (USA) and sells it for $ 5295.

  1. NOTE about VECTRIX (electric scooter maker):
    (from Facebook page)
    I’m sad to state that on March 31, 2014, Vectrix LLC filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts and I was appointed as its Chapter 7 trustee. The case number is 14-11381-WCH. I’ve had a chance to see the different motorcycles; the VX-1 and VX-2 and the very cool VX-3 with its stable three-wheel configuration. Unfortunately, the company has shut down. We will be auctioning off the remaining assets on June 18, 2014, at the company headquarters in New Bedford. Paul A. Saperstein & Co. (www.pesco.com) will conduct the auction, and on-line bidding will be available. The assets being sold will include 75 complete Vectrix all electric VX1, VX2 & VX3 Motorcycles & Scooters, about 100 new Lithium Ion batteries suitable for use in Vectrix cycles, and more than 1.6 million dollars’ worth of replacement parts. In addition, the auction will include electronics, office equipment, assembly plant machinery and an extensive selection of machine shop and manufacturing equipment. Paul A. Saperstein & Co.’s complete auction guide is available online at http://bit.ly/vectrix. We might also include any available intellectual property and other intangible assets. – Warren E. Agin, Chapter 7 Trustee.
