Wonder if that means you'll be able to set the speed, lean back and pour a coffee?

Apparently it's not quite that good—see here.

Interesting. When I first saw it I assumed that they must be using a massive gyro. Seems that they adapted the technology that keeps their robots from falling over. Very cool, Honda!

That said, I can't see myself paying for this feature on a motorcycle.

Wouldn't it be a bit of fun getting the CB to follow you around the supermarket?

I wonder if it would respond to verbal commands like "stay" and "come".

Received a lukewarm response from some in the press..........fearing the self driving car.

When, in the near future, will it be illegal to manually operate a motor vehicle?

My prediction? California will be the first. Smile

Reminds me of the western movies where the guy's on some second floor saloon and needs an escape out the back window, whistles, and up trots his trusty steed and so he jumps...and then the horse moves.
