    I never understood all of the excitement behind these things. It's not like it's some sort of breakthrough technology or anything. And where am I supposed to ride it? In the street? Yeah.. that's a good idea. Filthy traffic whizzing by me as I try to get to work. What do I do in winter?

    When they come up with a fuel cell car that can work in the snow.. I will be all over it!

    The technology behind it is much more interesting than the thing itself.

    Oh and I gotta pay 30+ grand for a scooter then also pay to fly to orlando, pay for lodging and also pay to get into disney world? Hmmm...

    Well, you can write off the difference of the market value (scooter plus trip) to what you earned for calculating your taxes. [​IMG]

    Well I can see how the post office workers can benefit from these things. They can hold like 300lbs I believe (250 lbs for the driver and another 50lbs for cargo). They can go like 12 miles per hour....average walking speed is like 5 mph right?

    I think that there will be a market for Segway and that they will sell well. Remember when we talked about IT here?

    They should have called it the Segway Human Individual Transporter. That would have yielded an amusing acronym that rhymes with "It".
