Friday Funny: Honda Helps the World Become Even Lazier
Do you hate having to stand and walk to get from the couch to the bathroom, or from your office chair to the printer? Well Honda has the solution for you: the Uni-Cub, "a personal mobility device that lets you glide around the office or the aquarium perched comfortably on what looks like a trash compactor on wheels," writes Deborah Netburn. "Like the Segway, the Uni-Cub allows the rider to control it simply by shifting her weight forward, backward or side to side."
"The Uni-Cub is not on the market yet, but Honda said in June it will start testing the device at Japan's National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation."
