Combining the Segway with skiing and strollers

New concept would redesign handlebars and navigation.

We've intimated before that the Segway isn't exactly our cup of tea , but we're frankly afraid of going down that route again for fear of reprisal . So without judgment, we herewith present another item on said machine that seeks to improve upon the design, regardless of how one feels about it.

Designer Sarah Park has drafted a concept that would outfit the famed personal transporter with dual handlebars that Gearfuse describes as a "skiing-like steering mechanism." The size of the handlebars would be similar to those of a baby stroller and navigated in a similar fashion. Given the Segway's history in this department, it might not be a bad idea to consider something like this. We're just not so sure about the description of it being "similar to pushing a stroller and skiing down a slope"--imagery that's reminiscent of the shootout scene in The Untouchables.
