The S-Pod is like a traditional Segway that you can sit in. The new egg-shaped two-wheeler from Segway-Ninebot is meant to let people sit while they effortlessly cruise around campuses, theme parks, airports, and maybe even cities. Instead of leaning to move, though, it’s controlled by a small joystick. And it has an eye-popping top speed of 24 miles per hour.

Seg-Way S pod suggestions. You are going to need a computer onscreen tinted windshield and maybe use this as a pod for getting on a hyper tube train maybe use the good year Spherical tire with autopilot. Or even a maglev lane. Can this get a lazy boy cushioning? Oh also a headband with brainwave esp so you can be Charles Xavier. Now for the most extreme is to have it blend in to the background as invisible camouflage. Just wait for the police to get some version of this as patrol vehicles. Can we all say NASCAR?

How is this better than any other electric wheelchair? The wheels are smaller. Also, I find it borderline offensive that they're marketing this as just a wheelchair for healthy people who would simply rather sit that walk at a shopping mall. This should be aimed at people who would otherwise use a wheelchair and also at commuters as a more comfortable alternative to an electric bicycle and less expensive and greener alternative to a car. You could comfortably zip down the road to work at 24mph without breaking a sweat, which is fast enough if you're not going far and don't need to carry much. Put a backpack over the back of the chair. All it needs to be reliable transportation is a basket or lockbox on the back to hold things (like bags) and an umbrella to keep off direct sunlight and rain.

So electric scooter got banned in most city's for overtaking the side walks. What makes u think this will be allowed. Cant ride it in stores or malls cause they all have there own carts they have to use by store law unless ur disabled and have ur own chair of course. Keep on hearing " made for mall's" and other stuff that's untrue about where u can take this thing. So once again it's a oversized hoverboard u cant take anywhere unless u want to be wiz k and get thrown off ur board at the airport by cops

I watch this, I try to be optimistic and hyped for the technology, but my first thought was "stupid" and my final thought was "yes, it is rather stupid if used by normal people", but I can see a use for that for older or handicapped people that need to be able to move between houses within a smaller area, and in that way it is not as stupid as a first thought.

I worked on the OGO now named Omeo and the joy stick just doesn't work that great, 24 mph peeps gonna be getting hurt. BTW I created the first off road Segway so I do know what I'm talking bout. The predessor of this was the Ibot wheel chair which sold for 25k not exactly affordable. My guess this will go the same way of the Ibot and T3

I can see disabled using it, BUT its far too big to use in the home and maybe too big for a pavement / sidewalk in the UK or US. The mall's would have to have a speed limit inside and I'm sure it would be too fast for indoors. Not sure about the concept, maybe OK to be used in a hospital, but its down to its speed being limited. And the model looks good for thin users, the bigger person would struggle to fit inside it. Segway is not very big in Europe at all. Expensive flop on the way like Google glass.
