If you could imagine twenty years ago that we would have all of the technology that we do today, would you have believed it? HDTV, televisions that are half the size of football fields, cell phones with advanced technology, laptop computers, netbooks and hybrid cars are just a few of the mind boggling items that have come out over the last decade or two.
It does make one wonder that the technology of the future is going to be and what the baby boomers of the current time are going to be able to purchase and use in the years to come. There is one product that really caught me eye when I was looking into this further and what I found is the U3-X by Honda, which is a personal mobility device.
What this device does is something that no other personal mobility device has been able to do as of yet. The U3-X is able to move in 360 degree motion, just like a human can. It can go forwards, backwards, side to side and diagonally. It is fascinating to see the U3-X in action because it looks like the riders of this machine would easily fall off if they tilt the wrong way, but the technology this device was built on has sensors that prevent that from happening.
The U3-X is just one device that the baby boomer crowd might be seeing on showroom floors over the next several years. With green energy rising in popularity and the advancements in computer technology, it is going to be interesting to see what is available to the next generation.
