Now HERE’S a personal mobility device that has potential! We’ve always thought the Segway was too big and clunky to ever be practical. Plus you have to stand up! Honda has developed this “electric unicycle” using technology developed through robotics research and it moves easily in all directions, just by leaning. It will be introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan on October 24. We do kinda wish that General Motors had come up with this.

    Yes, but with the Segway you had to large points in ground contact and a low center of gravity. Tough to get knocked around even in a crowd. This? One absentminded bump by a passerby and you’re eating concrete.

    I’LL RESERVE MY OPINION UNTIL AFTER IT ACTUALLY COMES OUT AND WE SEE WHAT HAPPENS, AND HOW WELL IT REALLY SELLS. JAPAN COULD USE IT FOR SURE WITH THEIR OVERCROWDED CITIES…(OOPS SORRY, DIDN’T REALIZE MY CAPS WERE ON!)

    Sorry, but it looks like an oversized vibrator to me. If a vibrator can ever be oversized.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
