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.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
