I've ridden my unicycle to work on occasion. The benefits over a bike are small. It takes less space to store, and I got interesting comments along the way. Most people have never seen one. The drawback over the bike are many. My uni is only about three times faster than walking or about two times slower the a bicycle. Obviously stability is a problem, it has a much lower tolerance for wind. For some the lack of coasting, my commuter bike is also fixed gear.

I ride the fixed gear because I love the simplicity/reliability, so the uni takes that to another level, Only a wheel and pedals. But it did not work out that way. Just too much trouble.
I don't feel the need to electrify either of them.
