RODEM – Segway Like Robot

rodemTmusk, a robot maker from Japan, has unveiled the RODEM (Robot De Enjoy Mobility).  This vehicle is sort of like a Segway and a robot combined.

The robot can be controlled by body movements or a joystick.  The robot can also be equipped with GPS, voice commands and a few other extras and is aimed at Japan’s aging population or people with disabilities.

Tmusk hopes to eventually sell REDOM at between $5,000 and $7,800, but no word on when it will be available.

I’m not really sure I can see older folks riding something like this, at least in the United States.
