The 26th Precinct of the NYPD is here to crap on your futurist dreams and promote safe streets.
British police reminded the public yesterday that it’s illegal to ride “one of these” in public. And by “one of these,” the fuzz means self-balancing scooters. That didn’t stop the press from calling the wheeled contraptions “hoverboards.” Ugh!
Segways are nerdy and awkward, there's no way around it. This solowheel, a "self balancing electric unicycle" is just as nerdy as a Segway but slightly less awkward. The Solowheel only weighs 20 pounds and comes in a relatively small package and is definitely no where near as unwieldy as a Segway. Plus, it doesn't…
A Segway i2 that's customized to fit into the Tron universe? Never before has personal transportation been so simultaneously geeky and inspired. This is the light cycle mall cops use on the Grid. And it was shockingly easy to make:

Though to…
What happens when you take a Segway to a supercross track? You make motocross far less exciting.
Vice TV, going where no other news outlets dare: This time, it's Segway instruction from an NYC weirdo named Itsy, then stage combat light saber lessons with the NYC Jedi Academy in Brooklyn. Then, fight!
There's nothing more you have to do than point and laugh at this poor woman and her Segway. You would have thought the other woman would be the one to eat it, karmically speaking. [BBG]
Any place where you can ride around on Segways and Pocket Bikes and still get to hang out with the freaks who used to play Magic near the computer lab in college and are now making more money than God is a place for us. Fun Mechanics (?? where are these site names coming from?) has a delightful photoset of all the…
