Two Knees Wanted
It seems my knees continue to worsen. It’s getting more painful to get around. Walking, especially downhill, is difficult. Steps, both going up and down, are getting to bother me a lot. I’m seriously considering getting a knee replacement this winter. If that goes well, then plan for the second knee the following year.
Honda’s U3-X Prototype
Another means for getting around is under development. A good friend sent me the link to the following video a couple of weeks ago. It tells about a device that Honda is developing called the U3-X Personal Mobility Prototype. It’s a battery powered person mover that weighs about 22 pounds, goes frontwards, backwards, and sideways. They call it Omni-directional. It looks neat for sure, especially with these two pretty and thin girls moving around on these devices.
But I wonder how it would work and what it would look like to have a 200 pound woman or 300 pound man trying to ride one of these things. I believe the U3-X would scream, “One person at a time please!”
And be patient with yourself especially today. Why? Well, Friday the 13th came on Thursday this month!
