Not Everyone Impressed By SegWay
from the for-good-reasons... dept
After watching Good Morning America this morning and reading up on the SegWay, I have to admit that I think it’s pretty cool… but probably not worth all that hype. At $3,000, it’s way too expensive to make sense as a consumer product. So, some production efficiencies are definitely needed. A few questions I had: will it fall over when the batteries run out? Why not just add a third (or even fourth) wheel to make it more naturally stable? People were going on about how stable it was, but there are plenty of stable vehicles out there that don’t require a crazy computer powered gyroscope (or ten of them). It seems that others aren’t completely convinced of the SegWay’s future either. However, that doesn’t mean this first edition won’t inspire other devices that really are revolutionary.
