I need a simple stand and ride scooter prototype based on an Omnidirectional Ball Wheel Mechanism, with the back two wheels powered by roller bars and the front wheel passive and used for stability.

The prototype should not have a footprint bigger than a Segway i2. It should be powered by a lithium ion battery. The balls should be tough and driveable on a sidewalk, gravel path or road for testing, similar to a pipeline spherical pig. There should be a lean bar similar to the Segway i2 for the purpose of steering, accelerating and decelerating the prototype. It should be able to hold a person weighing up to 250 lbs. In production form, this vehicle should be able to go as close to 15 miles per hour as possible.

This prototype does not have to be beautiful, but it must be able to meet the requirements above.

The goal is to eventually mass produce this vehicle for $500 per unit or less if possible. So this project has to be done with that end point in mind.

I can provide you...
