Those crazy Honda engineers

Picture if you will the nightmare world where Segways are combined with unicycles in a twisted perversion of science.

'Preposterous' you say!  'Utter lunacy!'

My friends, the nightmare is reality.  I give you the Honda UX-3:


This is a twenty pound monstrosity that remains upright through the use of an inclinometer.  When folded up it's compact enough to fit into a car door.

Control is achieved through subtle leaning, as with its predecessor the Segway.  For those truly brave, Honda's demonstration video shows the beast in action here.

Know that evil is among you, ye faceless masses, and know TERROR.
