Test Driving A Segway

from the sounds-fun dept

Popular Science has an interview with one of the postal carriers testing the Segway. He sounds positively neither here nor there about it. It’s not that he doesn’t seem to like it, but he doesn’t sound particularly enthusiastic either. The reporter also took it for a test drive and sounds impressed. However, she mentions that if you mess up the throttle and the turn knobs you can flip the device. Since all of the initial announcements made it sound that the device could not be made to fall over, that doesn’t sound good.
