Honda’s U3-X is the Human Transportation Device From the Future!

The Honda U3-X, the automaker’s new personal mobility device, is a boom box-looking one-person unicycle-like scooter for office use, home mobility and travel on sidewalks without interfering with walkers.

This is less a replacement for a walker, as with Honda’s Walking Assistance Device, and more a Segway-style personal passenger vehicle. It uses an electric motor designed to provide free movement in all direction, stop, and adjust speed on the fly using shifting body weight. The trick is the Honda Omni Traction Drive System or the “HOT Drive System”.
