EniCycle a prototype self-stabilizing unicycle

Slovenian Aleksander Polutnik has invented a motorized unicycle he calls Enicycle, featuring an electric motor, a three-hour battery, gyroscopic stabilization-assistance (helping to keep it upright) and a spring damper.

No pricing information has been announced on the inventor's website, since he only has two working models and is in the process of seeking mass manufacturing.

We can see the EniCycle in action here, where Ortis Deley from The Gadget Show learns to ride one in just under five minutes. It certainly looks fun and easy enough to ride, but I wonder how easy or painless it is to maintain that semi crouching position ?
