Testing out Honda's personal mobility Uni-Cub device

Honda has shown off in Europe for the first time the personal mobility vehicle it is developing, called Uni-Cub.

Users sit on it, then control it by adjusting their posture.

It features the company's latest balance control technology, and uses an omni-directional driving wheel system.

It has been user tested in Tokyo's National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan), by both guides and visitors - but the company believe it could have wider uses in urban environments.

The BBC's Dougal Shaw tested it out in Brussels, with Honda Europe's Vikki Hood.
