A 360° scooter that rides on a ball

Well that looks awesome but... are they really going to keep that design? ☹️
Very impressed that someone figured out how to make this work and rideable. Guessing it's an early design and the future of this could look at lot more sleek.
What's with the cushion on top? Looks bizarre
@_sklahr_ My guess is that it's where the electronics are stored. The cover is there so that it can be easily removed for quick access.
