An anonymous (and hence, unconfirmed) source has told us that Segway engineers are currently working on a new model of the electric scooter that has no handles. The new Segway is in early development, and may use either a wireless handheld control unit for turning, or may in fact turn solely based on the balance of the rider, like a skateboard. Crazy, if true, but it might give the Segway a much more portable option, since the current models are somewhat unwieldy to haul up stairs or strap to one's back.
If you know more, feel free to let us know (pictures, unlike our half-assed photoshop job, are welcome, as well).
