Video of the week: Honda U3-X for future fanboys
Honda has developed a new “personal mobility technology,” naming it the U3-X. The experimental unicycle is designed to provide free movement in all directions just like human walking, including side-to-side and diagonally. The U3-X makes it possible to adjust speed, move, turn and stop in all directions when the rider leans their upper body to shift their body weight. This was achieved by systems such as the ASIMO robot’s balance control technology as well as an omni-directional wheel system.
Does everyone else remember the failure that was Segway? 😛

The $3000 Segway possibly became a successful niche product. It was supposed to revolutionise transport and replace cars supposedly, which will never happen.
