Blog: Dave LeggettHonda's U3-X

Dave Leggett | 28 September 2009

You have to hand it to the boffins in Japanese companies - they really do come up with some impressive stuff. Honda's U3-X is an interesting take on low-speed personal mobility. It's reminiscent of a unicycle and presumably is packed with gyroscopes and clever sensors to make it work. Practical? It might have applications for people who have trouble walking - an alternative to a wheelchair for people with arthritis, for example. I'd like to see a 20-stone Millwall fan balancing on one. I guess things like this keep the Honda engineers happy.
