It only has one wheel, but Honda’s futuristic personal mobility device, called the U3-X, is no pedal pusher. The unicycle of the future moves as you move, wheeling you to your destination simply by sensing your body tilting this way or that, Segway style. IEEE Spectrum got a chance to try it out and also filmed the Honda employees cruising around Time Square in New York City, where they drew an excited crowd.
