Ri-Goddamn-Diculous Invention Of The Day: U3-X

"Grandpa, what was 'walking'?"

  1. That's great until you hit a bump. Or a pebble. Or have to go down a curb.

    I love energy-saving devices that don't save me any energy.

  2. So it's sort of a cross between a motorized wheelchair with no back on it and a Segway then, I guess. Except as a wheelchair, it's not designed for people who can't walk, but rather, for those who are just too lazy to do it. HA! This is just what we DON'T need.

  3. I like how the infomercial said it provides a "natural riding feel" ...I am not sure what to make of that statement because nothing natural, at least nothing that I know of, moves like that.

  4. Unicycle for lazy folks. There's a whole live-action show for the Asimo robot at Disneyland. My husband was enthralled, but I fell asleep. I would've rather been standing in line for Space Mountain.

  5. So you have to be a skinny girl with long, straight hair to have one?

  6. I like the way they got a couple of skinny chicks so when their thighs spread out they don't look too big. It looks like a boombox when she carries it in. The whole thing is WTF odd.

  7. If I sat on that thing it would just crumble to pieces under me.

  9. I agree with all of these comments. Could have ended as an awesome lesbo scene, but instead they have to present this fucking ridiculous idea

    Well, it doesn't hurt your chances, but I'm guessing if you want to be in the testing group to get one, a pair of big sweater kittens would probably help a lot more.

    Scientists tend to be really lonely...

  11. So which do you think would happen first, the immense weight gain as even people with active jobs no longer have a reason to get up and walk about, or the screaming back pain from sitting in what looks like a bar stool all day?

    No. Absolutely not. Death first.

  12. I think they look like they are squatting on the commode. (heh heh I said commode)

    Lesbian porn would have been a definite improvement.

  13. The tech of this thing is awesome. Getting all that logic motors and batteries into that little 8-shaped thing is seriously cool. On the other side of that, providing a tool to rob people of the only friggin' exercise they ever get it wicked retaaaded. It also looks a bit uncomfortable. I know my ass hurts from just looking at those chicks using it.

    I'll pass.

  14. I wonder if it comes with instrumentation to measure the increase of body fat percentage, weight, and blood pressure just from riding it vs walking. Does it yell it at you everytime you get on or can it email you an over time graph so you can see how big your ass has gotten? Does it at least come with a selection of bigger seats and tell you when it's time, or is that how they get you on residual purchases??

    :D

    On a serious note, if it is anything like a segway, i'm sure it handles curbs and whatnot fine, but yeah, i'll pass on the crotch crushing fun. I'd just assume walk..


    Seeing this thing brings to mind "Wall-E".

  15. "Crotch crushing fun" :-D

    I bet you can't say that three times fast.

    There are websites devoted to that.

    The tongue twisters, I mean. Not the crotch crushing....

    {{{....looking around...}}}

    I figure it must have a weight limit. You know it's time to walk when the thing shatters beneath you in line at Dairy Queen.

    I seem to remember you leaving almost that exact quote for a product on Amazon.com, something called the "Rear Admiral" if I recall correctly.

    The funny thing is, I can't for the life of me figure out why it was called that, the thing looked way too small to be a watercraft...

  18. What's the use of this? I mean, who is the intended audience? Anyone who would have trouble getting around would need something with a back. Anyone who needed to sit because of dizziness of back pain would be happier with one of those flippy chair/cane things. You need long legs, a fit body, excellent balance, and strong shoulders to haul it around. It can't go over bumps because there are no handle bars to hang onto for balance.

    The only thing I can possible think of is if you have to get from the international arrivals terminal clear to the other side to catch a connecting flight in domestic in about 15 minutes (and believe me, I have done that far too many times to count). Then it might be useful. You could have a race with those lazy ass rent-a-cops on Segues. That might be a larff.
