    Move over Segway, Honda introduces the Uni-Cub


    [​IMG]


    The people mover has gotten an upgrade: On Tuesday, Honda announced its new Uni-Cub, a personal mobility device that lets you glide around the office or the aquarium perched comfortably on what looks like a trash compactor on wheels.

    Like the Segway, the Uni-Cub allows the rider to control it simply by shifting her weight forward, backward or side to side.

    Unlike the Segway, it is small enough to be used indoors.

    Can fat people use these at Walmart? That is the most important question.

    I know I saw a piece on that thing, with video, about 2 years ago. And it's STILL "not on the market yet"? This is Honda vaporware. :(

    Ah, here we go. They've been bullshitting about this since 2009.

    Just for reference, they started work on their humanoid "Asimo" robot back in 2000, and still haven't sold a one.
