Shane Chen, founder of the company Inventist/Solowheel, produced and patented a multitude of inventions, we present to you here those related to electric mobility.
First electric system self-stabilized worldwide
Kazuo Yamafuji Professor at Tokyo University’s Electra-Communications is developing the first electric system self-stabilized simulating the behaviour of an inverted pendulum. It will be patented as a Parallel Bike.
The system of self-balancing information (wrongly known to as “gyroscopic effect”) already exist, it is therefore not patentable. Nevertheless, Dean Kamen, a brilliant inventor who knows this system dating from 1987, is now interested in wheelchairs. He wishes that they could climb the steps. To do this, he imagines a triple axle, auto stabilized on each axle system. Noticing that it was a commercial failure, it simplifies and patented the personal 2-wheel with handlebar, including Segway purchase licence which will expire in 2019. This concept will be reproduced by three Asian industrial and never will affect the general public.
