Trouble Walking? UNI-CUB To The Rescue!

In: Mobile| Technology

4 Jun 2012


Honda Motor Co. re-invented the wheel with its battery-powered, two-wheeled mobility device that can carry pedestrians at a top speed of 4 mph (6km/h).

The “UNI-CUB” allows the rider to control speed, move in any direction, turn and stop, all simply by shifting his or her weight. It uses gyroscopic balance control technology and an omni-directional driving wheel system.

Just 29 inches (74cm) high, it puts the rider at eye level with other pedestrians, promoting harmony between riders and walkers. With its lithium-ion battery, it has a range of 4 miles (6 km) on a single charge.

Starting in June 2012, Honda will jointly conduct demonstration testing of UNI-CUB with Japan’s National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
