      I saw one of these in early October when I was in Seattle. I thought it was a Ginger (same thing? different version?), and it was zipping along at a pretty good pace. He was probably glad he was across a four lane highway from me, hehe.

          Lazier than driving a car <6 blocks to the convenience store?

          I think it could be a good substitute for taking the bus short distances. It's lazier than riding a bike, but better than driving your car somewhere. In the city I live in, you really don't need a car, unless you want to get out of town, or don't want to take 2+ hours to go to the far side of town (but it's best to avoid Beaverton and Gresham anyways :D). My question is, if you have a >50lbs of groceries in your backpack, will the gryoscopes get confused when you get pulled backwards a bit by the weight, or how will you stop if you are leaning forward to balance it? ;) There must be an emergency stop button somewhere...

            The big question: Will having one of these make a female want to have sex with its owner?

            I think not.

            There's better luck using the $ to rent a Porsche, or just hand out the $$$ itself!

              Hmmm.... a Segway, huh? Wonder what fun we could have with that.... Granted, it's not as intimidating as a golf cart....

                it's easier to weld spikes and a battering ram onto a golf cart....

                but still, it has potential....

                  it is around 3 grand, and for the first few batches one has to write an essay to win a chance to buy one for 3 grand... the neatest feature it has stock is the kickstand, since without it, it would just flop over... and surely if someone brings one to dc, it will most probably end up in the pool... segwaying while drunk equals broken walk-lights and a dump in the pool... :)

                    I'm waiting for someone to rice-up one of those silly things.....

                    The police at Atlanta International Airport use those things to scoot about the terminals. They work fine, until the battery dies. Then, if you're not paying attention, the gyros stop and it flops you face first to the pavement.

                      One would imagine for that amount of money they would sell them pre-riced.

                              I could see someone getting to drunk and driving it into the pool.. I am sure it is not the worst thing to end up in the pool..
