VIDEO: The UNO 3 a Real-Life 'Transformer'

Introducing the UNO 3... the world's first Transformer. 
Developed by BPG Motors, the all-electric bike has gone through an evolutionary change through the years to become the shape-shifting vehicle it is now. With a simple push of a button, this compact scooter transforms into a fully-capible motorcycle for higher speeds. 
It’s small enough to fit in an elevator or bring inside an apartment and stable enough to handle Boston’s morning rush hour. The Uno now has three wheels. In Uno mode, the vehicle is a dicycle that balances on a single pair of parallel wheels, enabling unmatched nimbleness with an extremely tight turning radius. At high speeds, a middle wheel deploys forward and the outer wheels shift backwards – transforming the Uno into a full street bike. This patented system allows the U3 to be stable throughout the transition.

The UNO 3 reminds me of the Autobot Bikes from Transformers...

Pretty cool.
If they integrate an iPad or iPhone systems display then I'm sold!
