DailyDirt: Personal Mobility Solutions That Solve Non-Problems Look Cool

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The Segway never really lived up to its hype, but it does serve a practical purpose as a means of transportation — and it’s a bit more convenient than a bike in some ways. (I haven’t been a fan of larger versions of the Segway (GM’s PUMA) because some things just don’t scale well. However, I’m not against tinkering with new transportation solutions to try to come up with cool new ways to get around.) If you like transportation gadgets, here are just a few cool-looking projects that offer some extreme maneuverability.

People keep saying that the segway is a fluke, but if you look at the adoption of the bicycle you can see that it took a long time like 30 years to catch on. In some places there were brief bicycle crazes lasting 10 years, then people would give up bikes and they would disappear from the streets until they caught on again. It took a lot of years of innovation before the bicycle finally caught on and stuck.

Give segway another 20 years and we’ll see what happens.
