Honda's U3-X

No, it's not a Segway or a unicycle. Honda's U3-X "personal mobility" contraption is a device that combines technology from Honda's ASIMO robot project with its omnidirectional driving system, which allows riders to scoot in any direction simply by shifting their weight. What appears to be a single-wheeled design actually includes several smaller motorized wheels, which make side-to-side movement possible. Still in the experimental-model stage, the U3-X has a top speed of 3.7 m.p.h. (6 km/h) and weighs less than 22 lb. (10 kg). A fully charged battery can power it for up to an hour.

Here it is in action:

Now tell me that isn't pretty sweet

Hahaha, I saw this on a site the other day and thought it was worth a repost.  Excellent idea.


I found this new artist I really like named Zdzislaw Beksinski, his artwork is of very dark looking, ghastly images.  I find them really interesting to look at and they fill me with a sense of calm.  I hope you enjoy his work as much as I.
