May 7, 2010 Honda’s new mobility device the U3-X brushes away the unicycle Segway due to its movement in all directions. The unique mobility device U3-X is similar to a unicycle however the sideways movement capability puts it in a different class. The new mobility device is the first in the world that allows movement in all directions.
The U3-X wheels are made of tiny motorized wheels constructed inside the bigger uni-wheel in an amazing configuration that allows movement in any direction. The U3-x is light enough to carry and looks like a modern compact unit that can balance evenly on its own wheel.
Honda U3-X Features
The U3 can move at 3.7 miles per hour and emits no fumes, gas, oil or pollutants which is the best feature of the mobile unit.
It balances on its own wheel without assistance.
The U3 can move in any direction-forward, back, sideways and at an angle.
The Honda U3-X is lightweight only 22 pounds.
Honda’s technology has brought us the Asimo walking robot in the past and the new U3-X uses some of the same technology developed for the Asimo walking robot.
Honda’s new Personal Mobility device is a step beyond with its goal of making dreams a reality.
How the Honda Mobility Device U3-X Works
The most beneficial feature is that the Honda Mobile Device U3-X works without fuel and is easy to initiate movement. By simply leaning into the direction you wish to go the U3-X will move in that direction making mobility easy and quick. The device can also mingle with pedestrians either inside or outside with amazing ease and smoothness for the rider.
