Okay I'm a couple of years late

This apparently was displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007, however I didn't find out about it tonight until I saw it on an episode of "Top Gear".

It's a personal mobility device, with a range of up to 30kms per charge (I could get to work, but dropping the girls off at school on the way could be a challenge!).

I like the idea. Especially for short trips around the city.

Check out here for more details.

What do you think?

When the photo first came up, I thought it was a new type of rollerskate.

Well, maybe I'm not too far off.

I can see it already, a new racing class...LOL That WOULD be an interesting technology though!

It'd last about 30 seconds once it entered our town's streets. Then, blood, guts, plastic galore all over the road.

Our 15-ton garbage trucks stop nor slow for anyone.
