Honda UNI-CUB Mobility Device: Like a Sit-Down Segway

by Shane McGlaun

Honda’s latest mobility vehicle is called the UNI-CUB. It’s a little unicycle looking device that measures about 29-inches tall. The seat height can be adjusted up to 32 inches high, putting the riders face even with other pedestrians. The little utility vehicle is designed to carry people around indoors.

The UNI-CUB’s control system uses a self-balancing, omni-directional driving wheel set up that allows the rider to lean and control the vehicle in any direction. The vehicle can also be controlled via a smart phone or other touchscreen device. This personal mobility vehicle is an evolution of the U3-X that Honda launched in 2009.

Top speed for the UNI-CUB is 6 km/h, and Honda promises the vehicle is agile enough and easy enough to control that it can be used around pedestrians without worry. It’s intended for indoor use and has 6 km range per charge of its lithium-ion battery.
