The Segway is a pretty cool device. It makes the average dork look like a douche and makes us hate Steve Wozniak. So how could they talk it up any more?
It seems that they have to if they want to get any more funding. Sales have been poor to say the least and if they don't start selling these things, the company could be in trouble. The idea has always been a cool one, but who wants to ride around on a two wheeled dork-mobile? If you're a mailman or a delivery person, maybe we could understand it. But a guy with a pony tail and plaid slacks? Nah. Get off and walk.
