When the Segway was first released in 2002, they cost thousands of dollars, and were praised as an invention that would change society.
Over the years, the price has fallen dramatically, but they continue to be a non-starter in society. It turns out people just don’t want to ride Segways. Careening out of control on an expensive motorized scooter remains a niche interest. I suppose it doesn’t help that the former owner of Segway, Jimi Heselden, died in a Segway accident. Here’s a non-graphic picture of that.
Here’s a bonus picture of a war criminal falling off a Segway.
