Lit Motors C1 enclosed motorcycle uses flywheel magic, not training wheels, to stay upright

The C-1 enclosed motorcycle from Lit Motors could change the transportation world in a big, big way. Yes, it may be a little early to make that sort of unqualified sweeping statement – the first drivable prototype won't be complete for another six months – but if everything works out as planned, prepare to be impressed, if not amazed.
