(Best Syndication News) - Today, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. unveiled a new personal mobility scooter that is called the UNI-CUB. The compact design of the UNI-CUB does not have handlebars for steering. Instead, the person shifts their weight to change directions to maneuver it. The rider can also drive the scooter using a touch-panel remote control with a device such as a Smartphone.

The UNI-CUB has the world’s first omni-directional driving wheel system (Honda Omni Traction Drive System) making it easy for the rider to move forward, backward, side-to-side and diagonally. Because the design is compact (measures 520 x 345 x 745 mm) it is easy for a person to move around other people. It has only two-wheels, the larger one is in the front, and a smaller one is in the back.

The scooter sits higher than traditional models, at 745 – 825 mm, making it easier to have eye contact with other pedestrians. The battery uses Lithium-ion and powers the scooter to a maximum speed of 6km/h. The distance the scooter could travel on a single charge is about 6 km.
