"The race toward sustainable mobility is moving car companies in odd and unexpected directions. For example, Honda today unveiled the U3-X, a compact electric personal mobility device that fits between the rider’s legs to provide movement forward, backward, side-to-side, and diagonally." (I loved the side-to-side part)When you watch the You Tube video you can get a much better image of what the device can really do. I was very impressed. One cannot help but think that this device may have applications for older people in their homes. A commenter on the You Tube website said, "The good thing about this is it's compactness and usability. It could also be used by people who have lost their legs to IEDs, or to complement if not completely replace prosthetics" I had to agree.
