Self Balancing Electric Unicycle

So it is not the coolest ride, but it will turn a few heads. This project definitely intrigues me and I would love to ride over the Ready River Bridge on one, but the $1500 price tag to build one from new parts does not have me clicking for components. However, I will keep my eyes out for items I can get the parts from such as a used camcorder, motorized wheel chair, RC Cars, etc. Maybe in 3 to 5 years I can put one together for under $500.
