    The idea behind it to ease transport is not a bad one. Of course this is over short dstances - but imaging the number of people who use cars to go short distances. Would help cut down on pollution etc but I can just imagine a suburb with people using Segways - btw segways can "climb" up stairs as well.

    Yeah... as it use a battery to run the Segway. Nowaday pollution are getting bad on daily basis. Either the haze or the carbon monoxite are polluted our air.

    I havent seen that before... wouldnt mind trying to find a video of that. Maybe a different model could or maybe the one pictured above could if the steps were just a couple of CM rise.

    There's an off road one that I saw with some bloke going quite fast through the woods.

    I havent got one and wouldnt get one.

    Edit: The 4 wheel version looks like a good laugh!

    I dont, and dont think I would ever buy one. I would feel like a lazy POS if I didnt walk or bike to get around.

    On the segway site, they have a 4 wheel model there. The centaur or something. That looks pretty sweet!

    Yup... Centaur model can be used in rural and hill's area. But the price is about the price of small motorbike.
