Honda’s U3-X was designed more with robots in mind than humans. Can you tell?

Thanks but I'd be just as happy with sidewalks in more locations that I go to so I could make better use of the mtn bike that I already own. The trick is finding a route from point A to point B without getting run over by some cellphone talking or "in-texti-cated" driver (love that term, hate the apathy that some of the younger drivers have about it).
As is often the case at Honda, they build a toy to demonstrate a technical concept. This entirely impractical for personal transportation but it could be a very useful system to be used on a service robot.
I guessed the episode immediately as I saw the pic, but I saw the pic 2 days late, was on travel myself with a far more comfortable mode of transport (to wash DC and back in my "Magnificent 7" 740iL '98 I bought 4 years ago for peanuts (almost 90% off a new 7 iL)
Too bad GM didn't build this stupidity so everyone would give it the bashing it deserves on here.
