Offbeat: One person 'egg car' without wheels

Ever heard of a car without wheels?

Now you wouldn't say no after reading this post as Hyundai has designed a bizarre egg-shaped concept vehicle, offering a new line in travel for commuters.

The 'egg car', called the E4U is an egg shaped open topped scooter for solo drive similar to Segway.

By doing away with the traditional two-wheel design, the prototype uses a 'rotating semi-spherical part' - which looks like the lower half of a sphere and is constantly rotating.

According to Nikkei Tech-On, it works in a similar to a helicopter works, with the two rear wheels providing stability and friction to act like a helicopter’s tail rotor.

For the fashion and safety conscious, the top half of the 'egg car' can also be detached and worn as an attractive helmet.
