Probably not, if they didn't show it, but I really wanted to see that too.

I'd rather have one of these, it'd be perfect for getting around the office

The cool thing about the Honda is that it's got some weird system of smaller wheels attached to the bigger wheel, so it can go sideways as well as forward... if it weren't for that, I'd just say it was another eunicycle :P

When she first sat on it and zoomed offscreen, was anyone else half expecting a theatrical "CRASH!" noise and stuff bouncing back on screen?

For use in American offices, a super-duper extra heavy duty version would be needed. More like the Burning Man model.

Think simply... it could well be a sphere instead of a wheel.

Simple, yes, but the videos make it clear it's not a sphere... unless you mean the smaller wheels are spheres... I want to try one anyways
