 Foot (unit of length) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A foot (plural: feet; symbol or abbreviation: ft or, sometimes, ′ - a prime) is a unit of length, in a number of different systems, including English units, Imperial units, and United States customary units.
In rural regions and without calibrated rulers, the human foot was no doubt the origin of the measuring unit called a "foot" and was also for a long time the definition of its length.
In order to enable simultaneous use of the different units of length based on different parts of the human body and other "natural" units of length, the different units were redefined as multiples of each other, whereby their lengths no longer corresponded to the original "natural" standards.

 gizmag Article: Toyota's i-unit Personal Mobility Concept
Toyota is launching the "i-unit" and other concept vehicles and helper robots with a "Mobility Performance Show" to dramatise the future of mobile technology and its potential role in society under the theme of "the dreams, pleasure and excitement of mobility in the 21st century."
The "i-unit" is a "personal mobility" concept vehicle based on the revolutionary PM-01 announced by Toyota in 2003 - a cross between a partially enclosed motorcycle, an open wheel racer and a speedy vehicular exoskeleton for single person transport.
Like the PM-01, the "i-unit" offers personal mobility in an ultra-compact size with variable positioning, enabling the passenger to move among other people in an upright position in low speed mode, and a low center of gravity that ensures stable handling when the vehicles recline in high speed mode.
