    New tech is always prone to bugs that have to be tweaked out. Hopefully this one isn't too major.

    love to have one, But the price!
    Preliminary operational tests were inconclusive (the dang thing blew up)

    No really I swear its impossible to do. Atleast thats what everyone else says...when you think about going forward it goes forward. In order to crash they must not have any confidence in the Segway all hail the Segway!!

    I agree it is impossible to do. Lucky for that cop they didn't publish his name!

    I've been wondering just how they did do it. So far the only thing I can come with is that they were going backwards/forwards, then switched to the opposite direction too quickly, upsetting the segway

    btw, nothing is foolproof, if it is, they will just make a better fool

    Talk about the most stupid looking and idiotic device I have seen in a long time. If I was a cop, Id be embarassed enough if I had to ride a bicycle, but there would be no way in hell Id ride around looking like the village idiot on that thing. Give me a good ol' Black and white squad car, or maybe a motorcycle. Leave the clown car in the circus.
