VIDEO: Honda unveil new personal transport device

Check out the U3-X - ideal for open-plan office racing

FORGET THE  Segway thing, that's quite clearly old hat - check out this brilliantly weird gadget just released by Honda.

Named the U3-X, the device is a self-stabilising ride-on gizmo that looks great for racing around offices or bars.

The technology used in it, the clever bits that keep it all upright, come from the robot Asimo project that Honda has been touting around for a few years now.
It weighs just 10kg and once charged can keep going for an hour.

We want two of them and an indoor tennis court... the race is on.
