Honda Uni-Cub Makes Walking Obsolete

Honda has long been working on robotic balancing devices, think ASIMO, the walking Honda robot. Now, Honda has transferred some of that technology into a personal mobility device called the Honda Uni-Cub.

The Uni-Cub works along the same lines as a Segway, but instead of standing on a large device, you sit on it, like a stool. To control the movements, you simply lean in the direction you want to move and it responds accordingly.

We could see a device like this being great for workers who spend large parts of their days walking through large warehouses, or those with physical handicaps. A device like this could cut down on time spent walking letting them get more work done. And, it leaves your hands free, so you can check notes or make a phone call while you ride.

Check out this video to get an idea of how it works.

What do you think about the Uni-Cub? Will it be a useful device or something that will just make some people lazier?
