Behold the personal transport of the future! It looks like a boombox, but Honda's U3-X is a unicycle-like personal mobility device, that you can steer by leaning in the direction you want to go. It's small, unobtrusive, and sexy!
Reporters got a test drive of the U3-X today in Tokyo. According to Associated Press:
Honda's new "personal mobility" device looks like a unicycle, but all you need to do to zip around in it — sideways as well as forward and back — is lean your weight into the direction you want to go. The U3-X ... was designed to take up the same amount of space as a human being to be safe and unobtrusive enough to mingle with pedestrians, according to Honda Motor Co.
