Future Motion Inc founder and Onewheel Inventor
Onewheel was imagined and developed by Kyle Doerksen, an inventor and design engineer who’s been dreaming about one wheeled vehicles for years. He has built hardware products from kids toys to consumer electronics to medical devices and works to create magical new experiences through technology. Electric vehicles are his passion and Onewheel is an expression of the true freedom and excitement that electric vehicles can achieve.
Onewheel launched successfully on Kickstarter in January 2014 and thanks to the support of our amazing backers the Onewheel dream is becoming a reality!
Onewheel is based in Mountain View, California and is a privately held company focused on the development of advanced personal vehicles.”

Sam: What’s – -you got the gun. I’m unarmed. Do something. Go ahead. Do something. DO SOMETHING.
