This no one expected.
Car companies are in constant search for advanced technical and design solutions. This is sometimes (and sometimes marketing) is pushing the company to create something quite unusual for them. So there are a variety of individual vehicles, which is trying to prove that the car light wedge has not converged.
1. Honda UNI-CUB
One of the most significant attempts by Honda to produce a vehicle that would not be a car. Created the Segway was almost a decade ago. The first show of the vehicle took place in 2012. Rides Honda UNI-CUB on one wheel. The second utilizes to maintain balance. The control is performed by means of a set of gyros. They react to the tilt of the body of the pilot. The vehicle weighs about 12 kg.
2. Honda U3-X
But the “grandfather” of the above-described UNI-CUB. This is also a Segway, the truth and remaining a concept. He was shown back in 2009. Then Time magazine named a product of the company, “the coolest invention of the year”. To reach equilibrium uses the familiar system of gyroscopes. The ride was a scooter with only one wheel of very small diameter. Due to this, transportation is easily moved in different directions.
3. Hoverboard Lexus
Acclaimed hoverboard from Lexus. This is not just a beautiful concept. This thing can actually float over land and water. However, there is no small “but”. Under the surface should be magnetic rails. Altitude is supported by contact of the magnetic fabric with superconductors in a special cryo-chamber.
4. Toyota i-Real
Tricycle individual means, which (surprisingly) is controlled by a joystick. Created scooter Toyota i-Real to explore the city. For reliability stands on three wheels and can accelerate to 30 km/h the vehicle has a “smart” system alerts the pilot about the dangers and disturbances. This is done by sound and vibration.
5. General Motors EN-V
This is not some kind of Segway for office workers, and these double electric (same for them). Developed car was the General Motors company. The show took place back in 2010. Developed this miracle of technology in partnership with Segway. Goes through multiple 3-kW motors located in the wheels. Without charging or replacing the battery rides up to 40 km.
6. Hyundai E4U
Single Segway like an egg. By the way, the letter “E” in its name means “egg, evolution and ecology”, which translates as “egg, evolution, ecology”. Operated by the vehicle due to tilt of the housing. When a person is inside a Segway, the upper cover of the housing can be used as a helmet.
7. MINI CitySurfer
British brand MINI in 2014 decided to show something in the spirit of the company. The result was that created this convenient folding electric skateboard. The vehicle weighs 18 lbs. of Battery for electric motor will last for 20 km. However, when the charge ends, on the CitySurfer can ride, as bequeathed by the ancestors to push a foot from the asphalt.
