Solowheel has unveiled its latest gadget at CES 2015, a tiny two-wheeled marvel that looks like a miniature Segway but minus the handles.

The Hovertrax is expertly simple, you simple step on and start leaning back or forward with your feet. Unlike the Segway where use your hands, all the controlling is done through your feet.

Sensors in each wheel detect tiny differences as well letting you corner, spin and brake all at a moment's notice.

Solowheel admits that while it doesn't have a market in mind for the Hovertrax, its 8 mile range and 5mph top speed makes it ideal for large warehouses, people who want to pop down the shops and general thrill seekers.

There's no word on a UK price but if you don't mind the export charges it'll cost you around $995 in either black or white.
