On February 8th, 2021 heavy snowfall hit the city of Plzen, in the heart of Europe delivering the first “longer” snow of the winter season to the city center. 10–15 cm of fresh snow cover overnight the streets.

Waking up at 3:30 AM I went to work.

Using my Electric Unicycle

I enjoy every moment

At 3:30 AM the city sleeps. It is the same in the time of lockdown, so as in the times of freedom connecting to the possibility to live free of fears of infection, free of the fear of social contact, free of protection equipment.

For many in my city and country, it is the first snow, but due to semi-lockdown, the children of the city can not go and play freely in the snow. Instead, they have to sit at hope, in front of the screens to “LEARN” were only entertainment came before.

Blurred images

but it is enough to stop for a while and the image gets clear

The main Railroad station in the city center, free of people, lighted up by many lights shining into the sky.

The trains almost empty, keeping the schedule, riding free of passengers utilizing billions invested in the infrastructure.

Same for city buses and trams so as trolley-buses which cross the city with the driver and many empty seats.

For six years already my electric unicycle leave behind just one track

More than 50.000 km on a single wheel. Low flight over the country filled with emotions thanks to E-MOTION.

I do not say it is easy (especially in the snow or rain), but it is wonderful strengthening my body core up to the level of much younger me.

My car parked and used only for intercity travel, big shopping, or family travel. All the rest of the time my electric unicycle took over. It helped me to be healthier and at the same time to see more. Every ride remains on the low flight or skiing.

Electric Unicycle is helping me to prevent waste happen the same as my AIR FRYER. Both prevent time to be wasted so as the material.

In the first months, Elon Musk announced 100 M USD challenge for CARBON REMOVAL

Reading through the conditions I doubt INDUSTRY 5.0 and INDUSTRIAL UPCYCLING would be permitted or acknowledged to be applicable, despite the fact that “CARBON PREVENTION” is one of the results delivered for eight years already.

The reason for me to be skeptical is that if applicable, ELON MUSK will apply in his businesses already, but this is not the case as he prefers to keep a large carbon footprint behind his operations.


It is not the money that will deliver the change, but the change of the mindset from WASTEFUL to WASTELESS, and unless the “GIVERS” do not change themself the damage they deliver will remain the same or even bigger no matter how big the indulgencies would be.

Stay on track, concentrate and do what you ask others to do
