U3-X Personal Mobility Prototype

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Honda's U3-X is designed to provide the rider with freedom of movement in any direction forward, backward, sideways and diagonally by leaning slightly in the desired direction. The compact one-wheeled device also features a foldable seat and retractable footrests. A lithium-ion battery pack provides power for up to one hour of use and can be recharged by plugging in to a conventional household or office 120V power outlet.

Weighing roughly 22 pounds, U3-X uses a proprietary balance control system which derives from Honda's research into human walking dynamics for the development of the ASIMO bi-pedal humanoid robot.
