It should be possible, technically.

Surely with an insane amount of practice one could balance on a wheel
and walk on it, sort of like half log rolling and half
unicycling/UWing.

That's not to say anyone can or has gotten close, but there's nothing
inherently impossible about it.

And now we reach the simpler points of your statement, making it seem
possible-er.


in my 3 cents worth, its possible, but it'd be way too hard.

you would need to either be rolling fast enough that the wheel would
keep itself standing (gyroscopic), so as it wouldnt tip over sideways,
or you'd have to have the wheel perfectly straight. The slightest
tipping motion would cause it to fall, its like trying to ballance a
12'' ruler on another 12'' ruler that your already balancing, it'd just
be really really weird and hard.

Indeed, there would be nearly no margin for error. It would take an
incredible amount of core body strength to make the adjustments required
to recover from the slightest tilt, and anything more than the slightest
would send you toppling over.

Still though it's possible and if you ask me it's only a matter of time
until some crazy kid spends their whole life learning how to do it.
