Beep beep, here comes the poor person’s Segway. Well, almost…
by Larry Geller
Who can afford a Segway. It’s expensive ($5,350 to $6,400). This should be cheaper, and it lets you sit down. Looks cool, too.
Trouble is, as the website advises, it’s not a cinch to operate. Those dangling arms in the video are actually doing a lot of work. This invention will be no threat to the Segway.
But I think it’s cool, so I thought readers would like to see the video, anyway. If these really go into production, I can think of some friends who probably would love to have one.
