Yahoo! called it the Segway Killer!

I know what you thinking, this is the second title that contained the word “killer” on this blog in less than one week, but this is true, that’s exactly what Yahoo! called it in their headline.
However I will never call it that, in fact I was laughing on that title 🙂 because I know that the Segway was dead the day it was born!
Unless you are Adam Savage from the hit show MythBusters, or some big Hollywood shot that needs such thing to roam back and forward in your huge storage facilities, I really think that this is not for you.
Toyota said that it’s main target is the elder people in Japan, but I think it will be a long time before I see anyone riding it in the streets in the U.S.
The smallest model has no bars, instead it acts (and look) like a robotic skates, moving you smoothly all over your mall. Who knows maybe it will have a good market after all.

  1. Debbie, this is cool, they only use it in parks here, but I only saw 2 of them in the entire city, unfortunately, there is a Starbucks in every corner and in between >:) so it will be just crazy to ride anything (but a skateboard) just to get some caffeine!
