What will they think of next: Honda’s U3-X unicycle

You have got to see this one to believe it.

The folks at Honda have created a what they call the U3-X. Essentially, this is a stool with a unique directional wheel system that allows it to travel diagonally, as well as right, left, forward, and backward. I was one of those people that got caught up in the original Segway hype. (Remember how “it” was going to change the world.)

Maybe I’m a sucker for the next cool gadget, but this looks like a fairly miraculous feat of engineering. I look forward to giving this a test drive. If anyone knows how I might arrange for such a test, please let me know.
