Burning Man 2003 - RIOT Wheel

RIOT Wheel

This was an amazing thing to see in action. It's a single large wheel, driven by an engine mounted inside the hub along with a counterweight and gyroscope. The driver hangs out in front of it! It looks like it shouldn't work, which makes it a wonderful art car :) I believe it only went out for a single drive at BM2003, so I was lucky to see it.
