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 the ground. Again, its brilliant technology. However I have to question the ramifications of its implementation on what is an ever increasingly Lazy society. 

Jocke155: 2:54 or we can just walk normally 

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 time. 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.

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

James Partch: portland oregon has a one wheeled electric motorcycle ready now RYNO cool stuff

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.

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.

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.

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.

john bennett: Honda's self-balancing U3-X electric unicycle: http://youtu.be/5LduYhx5lDY mobility post car era

stephentsang2000: You will get a brain concussion riding on that.

Gilliam Flebus: I hope someone combines the solowheel with the technology from this unicycle to make it move sideways as well.

Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay: Yeah, but... Airwheel, Solowheel, Rockwheel ? You don't look like a dweeb on those :)

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.

Xavier Webb: where is it then?

ConduciveCorpse: Where can I buy one now?

skittles banana: Why not just ride a unicycle?

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.

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.

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!

юрий доценко: Данный вид транспорта, а особенно колесо / 5,06 / - можно использовать только в помещении .

Dooneegomaface Ifinnaspring: She only did like 2 mph. I wonder why not faster and some turning.

TsarKaz'm The 99th: WTF?

Think_Care: if this was 5 years ago, where is it now?!

Give Me A Puppy: What qabout the Airwheel X3 or X5 or X6

MrSHTFguy: Something to make skinny people fat and lazy, save your money and just walk.

endrizo: a 5 liter V8 version is in its way for the american fat market hahahahaha

Henrik Raa Engedal: Can't people walk by themself anymore?

TheComedyKidz: where do i get one?

bassomanvfr: Gizmag, I'll go you one better, mates: feet

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. 

nguyen linh: no safe time, too lazy

AppleJacksApple1: IN THE FUTURE: Everyone will be rolling around in those but it looks like they are just floating while holding their cheeks. 

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 ?

lozarok: Mad crap Cheers

Hsound: Looking so ridiculous on those things... 

Guy Parris: I am confused by the two different names used "Honda" and "Honder"

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 anybody. 

UltimateSubZr0: I wish they had made these to sell

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

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.)

ThePpls Shovel: Looks comfortable, if your a small asian woman. 

InventorSolidworks: First cooperate rather than compete. All these "prototypes" don't make the world a better place.

pmay222: im asleep already. . . cobber

ShokoLied: crap i just realized something, i am using a SLI "ready" mobo, does that make it impossible to use the 4850, or does it just mean i cant go crossfire? I would think I could still run a ATI card because its the same slot PCI-E x16. oh god please tell me im right, if i half to get another mobo right after buying a 200$ one, this will suck bad <.<
1aundulxaldin: Our wacky pair of Heroes of the galaxy kick-start another Bit adventure by volunteering to help President- I mean, EX-President Qwark who was reassigned to Q-Force private Sector Patrolling to defend Galactic Tower defense nodes from an Old threat from their past adventures, who kind of really has it out for Qwark's throat. And neck. And Butt-shaped chin thing. Who is he? And why does he hate Qwark so much? And WHY did this have to be another Multi-player game?

Jeipi59: “Um… thank you. I’m not much for public speaking, or much for speaking, or, come to think of it, much for the public. And I’m not very good at lying. So let me just say that, in my experience, high school sucks. If I had to do it all over again, I’d have started advanced placement classes in preschool so I could go from eighth grade straight to college. However, given the unalterable fact that high school sucks, I’d like to add that if you’re lucky enough to have a good friend and a family that cares, it doesn't have to suck quite as much. Otherwise, my advice is: stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless logic and experience prove you wrong; remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked; the truth and a lie are not “sort of the same thing”; and there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can’t be improved with pizza. Thank you.”
