The Segway has run out of runway….

The technology that powered the Segway was amazing. For 5 cents of electricity, one could travel a whole day. It had no engine, no throttle, no steering wheel and no brakes.

However, it had its fair amount of bad press including a fall that President Bush had when using it in 2003 and the cameraman who fell into Usain Bolt in 2015. People say that the riders look ridiculous on the Segway. I don’t see how those riding personal mobility devices look any better.

Whatever it is, the company that bought over the Segway will no longer be manufacturing it. I hope the technology can be harnessed and applied into a different rendering that makes a safer transportation vehicle.
