    At a car expo in China Toyota has presented the I-Unit. Not iUnit - though I seems it would match the iBooks and iPods and everything i and white from apple rather ok...

    The middle one looks like an electic wheel chair or scooter. The one on the left looks like those giant machines in star wars and looks like you could play soccer in it.

    They look to unsafe but very interesting.

    The middle one and the right one is in fact the same - et leans back when driving fast! The left one looks plain silly imho, hehe...

    The left one is useless for people who can already walk, while the other 2 are cool. Like someone else pointed out, they're the same vehicle, which seems cool. I don't know why my vehicle would have to be different whether I'm driving at low speeds or high speeds, but whatever.

    According to the article the one in the middle and the right are the same model. The middle position is for slower speeds. Then at a higher speed change the position to the one on the right. Very cool. Chances are they aren't made for a person of tall stature.

    Interesting concept - I wonder if we'll see these things in a Sci-Fi move soon :D

    And what's with the *space suits*?!?

    I saw these at the New York and Detroit Autoshows when I was there. INteresting concepts, but I gotta say, when the girl was all leaned back like you would be at highway speeds, it looked like something out of a sci-fi porno flick.
