Say Goodbye to Walking and Hello to the UNI-CUB!

Scoot over, Segway (I mean, you have to stand on it? Come on!). Here's a device that looks like it was plucked straight out of Wall-E: the Uni-Cub by Honda.

Representing the evolution of the U3-X personal mobility device that Honda announced in 2009, UNI-CUB features Honda's proprietary balance control technology and the world's first omni-directional driving wheel system (Honda Omni Traction Drive System). These technologies allow the rider to control speed, move in any direction, turn and stop, all simply by shifting his or her weight. Since the rider can freely move forward, backward, side-to-side and diagonally, he or she can quickly and easily maneuver among other people.

It remains to be seen whether the Uni-Cub can handle American-sized riders. Hit play or go to Link [YouTube] - via Accordion Guy

Ok if you are disabled. If not, what the $#&@ is wrong with walking?!? Where did I see this contraption before? Oh yeah, in Wall-E.
