Pointless? I guess you think segways are pointless also...

I think you`re all missing the point, it`s not supposed to replace walking, and I doubt even that gyro could support your average McDonalds regular. I think it`s just designed to be fun and cool. Which is exactly why I want one.

Because walking is just that difficult?

Great technology though; would be best suited for helping the disabled.

Yes, except for the whole `subtle muscle movements controlling the device thing` Hell, even remaining upright on that thing without outside assistance would be impossible for a paraplegic.

It`s an interesting invention, but I don`t really see a practical use for it other than just being fun.

"Is it faster or mobile than walking? I mean, I`m glad they invent this stuff because the technology will lead to other, usable stuff, but this thing is useless."

It`s a cool gadget and fun. That isn`t useless.

A few of those at work and you have a race ready to go! It would be a useful team-building exercise. Well, that`s an excuse for having a laugh at work in the lunch hour.

Also, it`s just the thing for getting around a space station :)

It`d make a cool bar stool. Basically, just so you could watch drunk people uncontrollably glide all over the place because they can`t control their balance.

Uhh, to me, and I could be wrong but it looks like the same technology as air hockey. The floor, it had holes, holes blowing up the air, similar to air hockey pucks, allowing them to glide. Again, I could very well be wrong.

And what do spinning rims do? Along with fuzzy dice and hula dancing figures in your car? Nothing. Yet people still buy the crap.

AMAZING!! I freaking love japan. I want to talk with the engineers who designed this little critter. There must be some heck of a gyro keeping the inertia vertical on that little thing. It`s so compact!

+1000 amazing points for japanese creativity.

You know, we already have an invention that does the same thing...our legs and feet! We STAND UP and get out of the damn chair, walk where we need to go, and then sit down in a different chair if necessary. Repeat as needed.

I really really want one. Not to scoot me everywhere, but for the design (lurve it) and for the cool/funny way it slides at will. ^^

the people who`ll want one will be the sort of lazy fat sods who need a cart to get round the shops. Those guys will require a standard hovercraft instead of one of these wee gizmos. As a result the technology is defunct.

Anyway, if you want an English explanation, it can be found at TopGear. And some other places probably.
