they will never be popular, they represent the ultimate lameness in man (and america), even though they are the best invention of man, supposedly.only because everyone knows youve gone and wasted $6-10k on a device to avoid walking... I bet if the price dropped to about $400 they would suddenly become very popular
maybe, but they are still a lazy persons way of giving up walking.I don't think Seways were designed to replace walking.
Average walking speed. 4/5kph.
Segway PT maximum speed. 20kph.
They were more likely designed to replace short bike, moped and car trips. I think they will be looked at in the future as one of those inventions that were just too far ahead of their time.
