    There is literally no real benefit of that over a bike.

    It can go 35 miles an hour but in city traffic you're hardly ever going that fast anyway. And it runs out of charge. And you can't just lock it to a sign.

    It's retarded.

    The key is mass transit and bikes, not stupid clown cars.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Honestly, I always thought it'd be incredibly neat to find a bunch of venture capitalists and try to create a planned community type city with perhaps a university in the vicinity designed around a lot of new tech.

    Set it up so that things like Segways, or something like this, can be reliable and workable means of travel through the entire area. Have an electric grid set up to allow for charging of electric vehicles in various places. WIFI across the entire community, etc.

    Granted you'd need some kind of main industry along with the college (which would make sense as some kind of tech college) to work. But I think it'd be a rather neat case study of trying to design a modern town based on modern technology.

    Again, what's the benefit over a bike? If the town is dense enough for segways it's dense enough for bikes. Which require no significant infrastructure. And don't look retarded. And don't result in fat people who can't walk.

    You could see some awesome segway crashes there when two segway riders, both completely enthralled in whatever they're reading on their dashboard placed laptops, smash into each other at the harrowing speed of 3 mph.

    Or you could get liquored up and go segway tipping.

    Where I went to undergrad school we generated our own electricity. This was in Brooklyn.

    Hey, I will admit, I'm a tech nerd.

    I had pre-curser to the "netbook" craze, the Jornada 820, back in high school in the late 90's (netbooks, for the non-tech geeks out there, are the little sub 13" notebooks that have been popularized in the past year).

    I've been a PDA geek for probably a decade now, graduating up to the smart phones, and anxiously awaiting the new Palm Pre.

    Love wireless internet or at least mobile internet, going so far as to buy my first cell phone model specifically because it had a connection that could hook into my pda to act as a modem.

    New Tech, and finding ways to put it to use, is just something that's always interested me. Which is why I was anxiously reading up on the "IT" when it was coming out, and why things like this...while foolish and maybe not practical...are interesting enough to me to look into it a bit and think of various possabilities.

    Where do you put your stuff?

    Crap like this is fine for college students, and old people that live in retirement communities. Its highly impractical for people that have such ludricous things like families.
