This amazing personal vehicle makes a person look as if they have been practicing in the circus for years.

The U3-X Mobility Device, a self-balancing unicycle developed by Honda takes a page from Segway and brings it up a notch. The device is able to balance on its own making adjustments to balance its user on the fly.

A shift in balance by the user translates into lateral movement by the U3-x. Amazingly it’s able to move sideways as well!

This looks to be a good competitor to the Segway as it is more compact in size and possibly runs more efficiently without the additional weight of an extra wheel and a platform to stand on.
