Toyota Takes an i-Swing at Segway

Among Toyota's announcements for the 39th Tokyo Motor Show is the concept "vehicle" called the i-Swing (we are going to stubbornly assume the naming of this had absolutely nothing to do with a certain Apple product). This seems to be Toyota's own personal take on the Segway, The I-swing has two wheels like the Segway for sidewalks, but can be converted into a three-wheeled mode for the road. It can be controlled by a built-in joystick as well as with your body weight (kind of like skiing). Lean left and it follows. It then uses AI to learn the habits and preferences from its riders. I don't know how I'd feel driving this thing up down Broadway in rush hour, but I guess it would know that about me.
