Honda has unveiled the UNI-CUB personal mobility device. It features balance control technology and an omni-directional driving system.
While the German automakers are busy developing pedelec bikes and e-scooters, Japan remains at the forefront of weird, futuristic mobility devices. Case in point, Honda's UNI-CUB concept which is an evolution of the previous U3-X prototype.
Designed to be the ultimate personal mobility device, the UNI-CAB features balance control technology and an omni-directional driving system which allows users to adjust their speed and direction by shifting their weight.
Power is provided by a lithium-ion battery which enables the device to travel 6 km (3.7 miles) at speeds up to 6 km/h (3.7 mph).
Honda will begin testing the UNI-CUB next month and all the findings will go towards developing "next-generation mobility technologies."
