john cole: Doesn't look very robust ie how would you change a wheel or tire it looks
like you could break this thing in no time at all and you can ride it only
on dead flat floors i would go for the solowheel or air air wheel they look
more robust easier to change a tire and i looked cheaper the only thing is
it takes a few days to learn out a ride it
flitsies: All these things are great but countries like the UK they are illegal to
use either on the pavements ie side walks or the road so they are only
useful on your driveway or in your house perhaps in a large work place.
Basically unless the companies can get the law changed in some of these
countries especially countries like the UK they are a complete waste of
In the UK electric scooters have to be registered as motorcycles even if
they have a motor less than 200 watts, which is the bicycle maximum wattage
for electric bicycles.
So it's not that these things wouldn't be bought and used it's simply that
they are illegal to use.
pegalis: I find this technology absolutely fascinating and innovative. Yet, at the
same time im strangely disgusted in how humanity is slowly loosing its
ability to walk out of shear laziness. A little while back, I witness an
overweight mall cop on a segway, scooter himself up to a vending machine,
plunk in some change and slowly lean over to retrieve the candy he
purchased. He then scooted away with out even taking a single step onto
Again, its brilliant technology. However I have to question the
ramifications of its implementation on what is an ever increasingly Lazy
Tom Tahamtan: unfortunately the solowheel hit the consumer market with all the same
capabilities excluding the side to side movement in 2011 at a price that is
cheaper than the Iphone.
stephentsang2000: You will get a brain concussion riding on that.
Xavier Webb: where is it then?
Jocke155: 2:54 or we can just walk normally
Teemcdee: they would be a great solution to navigating large work sites quickly.
Also when the new technology is adopted and adapted to work for disabled
people like those in those hefty electric wheelchairs - just imagine the
freedom they will experience. Well done Honda.
Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay: Yeah, but... Airwheel, Solowheel, Rockwheel ? You don't look like a dweeb
on those :)
skittles banana: Why not just ride a unicycle?
Gilliam Flebus: I hope someone combines the solowheel with the technology from this
unicycle to make it move sideways as well.
Legway: Self-balancing electric unicycle ---- It's similar to the balancing system
of the human body. When the center of body gravity is leaning toward the
front, you want to walk forward to keep balancing; when the center of body
gravity is leaning backward, you want to walk backward to keep balancing.
Legway self-balancing unicycle can test the inclination angle of the driver
by the built in inertial sensor, when testing that the driver is leaning
forward, legway self-balancing unicycle can accurately drive the wheel
forward to keep balancing. When testing that the driver is leaning forward,
legway self-balancing unicycle can lean backward in a similar way. The
forward and backward balance can be realized by legway self-balancing
unicycle itself; and the balance on the left or right side is similar to
that of bicycle, which means the driver can keep balanced by certain speed
and body swing. The speed of the driver can be controlled by the
inclination degree. The greater inclination degree, the faster speed it
will generate. If your body leans forward a little, it will speed up and if
your body leans backward, it will slow down or stop.
Jonny Deth: Welcome to a whole new level of lazy fast food fat asses who need a motor
crammed up their ass so they can move through today's crowded world.
ConduciveCorpse: Where can I buy one now?
Leo de Jong: Fantastic gadgets, but it does not solve any existing problem. Walking is
slower, but more healthy and and safe. I have already experienced the limit
of the technology.
Qu4ntumZ Z0n3: Hopefully the world wont be lazy lumps because of the advance of technology
Karl Maarek: This would be an ideal solution to all my age related disabilities. I fail
to see what this gizmo would add to a healthy persons ability of walking.
Frank Blackcrow: This would be amazing as you could travel the shopping isles at the
supermarket with ease, would make all those granny golf cart type ones
obsolete,,but,, and this is the catch, how far can a person get on one ?
Personally I would like to see a sports model, one that could get up to 50
k an hour, because the reality is that people will need to get somewhere of
a distance at a faster speed.
Give Me A Puppy: What qabout the Airwheel X3 or X5 or X6
Dooneegomaface Ifinnaspring: She only did like 2 mph. I wonder why not faster and some turning.
Think_Care: if this was 5 years ago, where is it now?!
Guy Parris: I am confused by the two different names used "Honda" and "Honder"
TsarKaz'm The 99th: WTF?
Paulo H: now im imagining most humans in a crowd just leaning forwards to move! i'd
prefer one of these where i didn't have to sit, but i understand the
appeal, now imagine one of those, where you can lean to move, but also fly
upwards and downwards, full sci fi awesomeness!
Henrik Raa Engedal: Can't people walk by themself anymore?
80schampion: Not everything is about fat lazy people it could be the crutch of the
future. If someone has a broken foot, ankle, surgery whatever. This would
like them get around and at the same time let the foot heal undisturbed for
a faster recovery. Good for seniors or amputees who don't want to deal with
prosthetics or are awaiting for new prosthetics. Too many people to quick
to be negative and have no vision. Yes .some people will use it because
they are lazy so what. Options are always good. Nobody is forcing it on
TheComedyKidz: where do i get one?
bassomanvfr: Gizmag, I'll go you one better, mates: feet
юрий доценко: Данный вид транспорта, а особенно колесо / 5,06 / - можно
использовать только в помещении .
nguyen linh: no safe time, too lazy
ThePpls Shovel: Looks comfortable, if your a small asian woman.
Ragna Rok: This walking assistent at 7:27 will constantly stimulate clitoris and
provide great pleasure also for other holes ;).
Richard Tan Tan: 4 Questions for Honda :
1. Why , after so many years, has this product not been sold or distributed
around the world ?
2. Can it go up hill ? 15 degree gradient? 45 degrees ?
3. How much does it cost?
4. Is it for mass market given what it costs ?
Hsound: Looking so ridiculous on those things...
lozarok: Mad crap Cheers
AppleJacksApple1: IN THE FUTURE: Everyone will be rolling around in those but it looks like
they are just floating while holding their cheeks.
Rak Hit: Until you can attach bionic arms and legs that let you run faster, jump
higher, and pick up freek'n tanks, not interested.
UltimateSubZr0: I wish they had made these to sell
azzo1300: Nobody walks anymore!!!
大叔外賣: Honda's self-balancing U3-X electric unicycle
MrSHTFguy: Something to make skinny people fat and lazy, save your money and just
Carlos Joel Garcia: Great history and reference point of reporting. I love this unit for
certain uses, I wonder what would happen to the global overweight epidemic~
Ramon: I'm sorry. Ryno motors out does this by far.
James Lee: I don't think it'll work for heavy people
quasi pseudo: But where do i keep my surfboard and how fast can it do 100 k return trip
thats how far the beach is 4 me
M Ibanobu: It`s efficient, the last thing we need... (It will take time for this to
catch-on with our current demand based economy.)
pmay222: im asleep already. . . cobber
