The Wheel of the Future!

Watch this short video of an Airwheel.

An Airwheel is the state-of-the-art means of transportation. Riders can control the Airwheel to go forward, accelerate, decelerate, brake, etc. by leaning forward or backward. Similar to the techniques of riding a bicycle, the riders achieve balance on Airwheel by slightly tilting sideways.

Personally, I would like to own one. This is ideal for people who are busy and on the go. However, this will comprise the simplest form of exercise, walking. Walking everyday going to the office, work or school has health benefit. With this airwheel, we are taking that away from us.

True that this Airwheel has pros and cons. The pros, well it's easy, fast and convenient. The cons, it has risk health issues by taking away the only exercise people can do everyday without effort.

But, if you really want to own one, you just need to put extra effort to inject a little bit of exercise to your life. This way, you can enjoy Airwheel and give your self that daily exercise that our body needs. What can you say?

We can't stop the development of technology, they are built to make lives easier. What we can do is compromise, use it for our advantage in the right way.
