I was wondering what people think about the Segway.
Are those things still around?
Seems like a nice idea that people didn't have a use for.
(completely stolen form a popular skit show airing on Saturday nights): I think it'll revolutionize the way people are hit by cars.
I've seen the giddy, glazed look that IT techs and software company managers get when they careen around on those things, latte in one hand, babbling into their Bluetooth... I'm not the least bit bothered by the technology, but I'm fearful of the yuppie baboons that use them.
Kind of in the middle. I guess I would spend the money if I had an actual purpose for it. It's really not all that great for an every day commute. No much of a recreational vehicle at top speeds of 12mph.
I don't know. It just seems there design makes them limited.
I want a Fender Jazz V, or a thousand other things, more. Not on my GAS list. Now if I was to find one discarded....
When I was in PA at the airport, I saw a state trooper coming down the hall in full uniform, on a Segway. One of the silliest things I've ever seen.
He wouldn't even let me take his picture. Talk about insult to injury...I can laugh, but have no proof.
I'd love to try one. The engineering behind those things is pretty amazing. And they look like fun.
Totally impractical though. I can see them having some limited commercial applications, but for commuting, they're ridiculous.
I love 'em -- gonna take one of those tours in downtown Chicago with my Dad and my boys when the weather gets nice again.
Seems to me they'd be most useful for people who frequently need to get around huge corporate campuses... ("Here, take this over to Henderson in building J.")
"They see me rollin'
On my Segway
I know they all must
think I'm white and nerdy."
+1 That was my first thought! Man did he look goofy! I wonder if Segway sales went down after that video.
Oh, and I didn't vote. My vote would be "I'd never get one, but I would try somebody else's." Since I am already white and nerdy, I have nothing to lose
Maybe if they attached a robotic Segway horse so it at least looked like you were riding a chariot.....
It looks a bit dorky but I think it's close to perfection for urban areas.
If I had extra money I'd buy one.
I want lots of things more than one, but if I found it in the dollar store, I'd buy three and a chocolate bar
no way, never
Once they get the current bug out of the system that makes people face-plant on them, I'd like to try one.
Seems like the ultimate tool for the lazy person.
I'll stick with my two legs, thanks.
