    That's pretty cool. The videos make it look like a lot of fun.

    I honestly didn't know silica had more than one use (preserving food).

    Now that's a cruel teaser! [​IMG]

    I imagine one fitted with a scooter engine. That could make the thing really fly!

    Last time I checked, the "A" and the "T" in "ATV" stood for "All Terrain". Those skinny smooth tires are going to get it stuck in the mud and the electric motor is going to leave it there. ROFL, in the video the guy took it ten feet into the woods then turned it around and came right back out. That ain't what I'd call proof of concept.

    Hey! I was going to come on here and start a thread because I actually saw someone riding a Segway (classic) the other day! A coworker and I were driving to lunch and lo and behold, there's this guy tooling up the sidewalk on a Segway!

    Never thought I'd actually see one... especially here in Milwaukee.

    Something like this is a good idea for Segway. I think it's pretty universal that riding a Segway is a FUN experience. Maybe they should concentrate on making more leisure products and marketing them as such. Then, they could start to introduce more industrial products.
