When riding a Segway you must have the proper attire. Jim is an excellent example:
Pocket protectors and a blue helmet with a red stripe are a MUST.
Is it a little cold outside? You can pimp in your Segway in cold weather too!
People of all ages can enjoy a Segway!
Even athletes enjoy their Segways!
Segways are multi-racial! Black, white, asian, Eagle, we don't care!
Obese people love their segways! Why walk that half a block to work when you can ride in style?
Santa loves his Segway!
i like the one with the off road tires
Santa's is actually pretty good!
Wouldnt an obese person break it? Why make fun of a guy with a pocket protector, I always wanted one. :(
no, im not exactly my "ideal wieght" and i rode one, damn things are built well
Did you know the guy who invented the segway (Dean Kamen) is also the founder of FIRST(For Insperation and Recognition in Science and Technology) which is the league/competition I participate in with robotics?
Sorry, random fact of the day.
He also owns his own island
His WikiPedia entry:
Ahh! It's the SDAC revolution! I can't tell anyone apart!
From the Segway wikipedia entry:
President George W. Bush fell off his personal Segway in June 2003, but was unharmed. The incident reportedly happened because the Segway was not switched on
Here's a dude who made his own http://www.tlb.org/scooter.html Then he built another, that is faster than the segway, and a much smoother ride than his first one. it is also bluetooth-driven http://www.tlb.org/scooter2.html
A couple quotes from the first link I gave
In the fairly likely event of the software crashing, a wire coming loose, a component failing, or the batteries running low, the wheels will stop and the entire kinetic energy of the system will be used to accelerate my head toward the ground.
With a scooter like this, if it stops working for any reason (software crash, hardware failure, low battery) you will fall, hard, and probably on your face. Imagine zipping along at 10 MPH, and suddenly the platform you're standing on stops dead. Oh, and there's a T-bar in front of you to trip you up if you start to run.
