Honda's new personal mobility device UNI-CUB β will debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show later this week. The UNI-CUB β has been designed for indoor spaces such as offices and commercial facilities.
Using the balance control technology and omni directional driving wheel system originating from Honda's ASIMO, the UNI-CUB β will be able to move forward, backward, and side-to-side and diagonally by shifting body weight and leaning towards the intended direction.
Honda developed the UNI-CUB β after analysis of the data and user feedback from this testing program.
Weighing 25 kg (55.1 lbs), the UNI-CUB β is 510mm (20in) long, 315mm (12.4in) wide and 620mm (24.4in) tall. It features a lithium-ion battery that allows it to reach a maximum speed of 6 km/h (3.7 mph) and has a traveling range of 6 km (3.7 miles) – or approximately 1.5 hours at the speed of 4 km/h (2.5 mph).
Check out the UNI-CUB demonstrated in the following video.
