The 48 Roller consisted of a large tire propelled by twin jet engines mounted near the base of the vehicle. The pilot sat within the wheel, using handlebars for acceleration, braking and hard turns. The driver could make some turns by simply leaning into them. Wheel bikes were fully maneuverable with just one hand and a small touch pad, moving fingers along the pad in the direction the pilot wanted the bike to move.
Behind the scenesEdit
The real-life counterpart to the wheel bike is the monowheel.
