In case anyone is curious- Japanese girl not included. I verified with Honda's website.

So how are you supposed to steer?
Pinch the left cheek for left and right for right?

How about braking? Lean backwards?

Accelerate? Lean forward?

For Honda, it appears to be a stepping stone into the micro-Segway market. But for all intensive purposes, this, I feel, would have no practicality in daily use.

But can it do 65 mph??? And if not, can it be modded?!

Those are the real questions! :q:

Has some of the same characteristics of a Segway. Steering, acceleration and braking are all the movements you make.

Am I the only one who noticed that it seems to be able to move sideways?

Nope I saw that too, I'm thinking the next replacement for walmart carts (if they can support 500 lbs.) they sure could get around those piles of stuff in the isles.

You fail to see the logic behind your statement. The questions posed here should read, "can those 500lbs. piles get around the isles?"

Am I the only one that has noticed the heifers that roam that landscape??? Nevermind the crap strewn about as if it were a Maragesh(sp?) open-air market.

Off topic but:
I hate to see big fat people using those Wal Mart carts because they are lazy and fat, not because they have a real disability. Then when my disabled stepfather comes in, all the carts are in use. Then I see the person that was on the cart walking just fine out in the parking lot.

Sorry, rant over. :argh:
