    Why do you need a helmet when using Segways?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    A novel toy to show neighbors... real transport? Not.

    The shell... still makes it look like a new wave golf cart.
    I'm not joking, that's their future if they can produce them for less than existing carts... that I doubt. 25% of what standard car? What is "standard". AMG55?

    From the link provided in the OP:

    He forecasts energy consumption equivalent to 200 miles per gallon of gasoline. That falls to about 70 mpg adding in fuel to generate electricity used to charge its battery.

    Yet a bicycle works 100 times better, requires no batteries and provides aerobic exercise for the security people which would keep them in shape.

    Segways are a gross failure. This will also be a gross failure and is essentially the same as strapping yourself into a death trap; another really stupid idea that can only be supported by those wallowing in deep denial about global warming and fossil fuels.
