The Pint-Sized Segway


We’re not sure how much we’d end up using a motorized stool—or how much we’d be willing to pay for it—but it’s nice to know they’re out there.

Engadget just took the Honda UX-3 mini-scooter for a test drive and we have to admit, we want one. Seeing how it takes to this carpet, gliding forward, backwards and sideways without a single wobble, it’s hard to think they wouldn’t make the perfect office perk...or the beginnings of an indoor polo league.

Tragically, it’s still in concept mode, like all Honda’s coolest stuff, but we have to think it’s only a matter of time.
