Brazillian Tito Lucas Ott, the (mad?) inventor behind the highly scary Wheelsurf monowheeler, has been in touch with us again about his newest project, which is no less bizarre. The OWheel operates somewhat like a Segway, but with the distinct advantage of looking like you're hoisting mad wheelies everywhere.

The Owheel's first prototype is under construction and Tito's putting together big plans for manufacturing and global distribution - but it looks like it's got the same key issue as the Wheelsurf; Tito doesn't seem to believe in stopping very quickly. But he does have a serious ability to inspire the letters W, T and F.
