Segway miniPRO [amazon.com] | Personal Transportation Will Never Be The Same

The age of the "hoverboard" is over. The Segway miniPRO is the next evolutionary step of two-wheeled, self-balancing personal transporters. Segway and Ninebot utilized decades of combined industry knowledge to create smarter software, stronger hardware, and safer features. The miniPRO's precision sensors automatically react to the rider's movements and maintain stability over a variety of indoor and outdoor terrains. The knee control bar provides innovative steering precision that allows you to maneuver more effectively than two-wheel hover boards.

The Segway miniPRO is the first personal transporter, before any hoverboard, to become UL 2272 Certified for the highest standards of electrical and fire safety requirements established by Underwriter Laboratories. Not only does it come with the highest fire and electric safety certification, but it also integrates with the Ninebot & Segway phone app to give you access to a wide array of premium features and functions. From the app, you can remote control the miniPRO without riding it, view dashboard performance, customize lighting on the unit, and enable a tamper-proof security alarm.

> Connect to the free mobile app via Bluetooth for full features: remote control operation, anti-theft alarm, speed control, customizable lights, vehicle diagnostics, and firmware updates
> UL 2272 Certified unit meets high standards of fire and electrical safety set by world-renown global safety science company Underwriters Laboratories
> 220 lbs payload, light-weight, and durable aircraft-grade magnesium alloy frame and 10.5-Inch pneumatic air-filled tires with military-grade shock absorption capability
> Dual motor engine delivers 1600 watts of power to safely reach top speeds of 10 MPH and distances of 14 miles on a full charge in a variety of indoor and outdoor terrains.
> Padded knee bar maximizes comfort and enables precision steering for more ergonomic control than hoverboards and electric scooters that rely on foot-pivot steering.

Actually nice to know this. I was on the fence until I saw the weight limit - and started to think of my kids' friends getting hurt and me getting sued ... if you can't treat it like a toy ...

Looks like this device will be one of those that comes in at the $500 price and that will be a game changer in imaginable ways - a real personal transpo device that works ...

I've been using it since last week to commute to work. It works out great for me since I only live 3 miles from work. I don't bike to work because there's no bike lane and riding a bike on the side walk is not allowed. I'm able to ride the Segway on the sidewalks and parking lots the entire 3 miles.

It's a personal transportation device, not a pickup truck.

That said, waiting for this to be ~$500.

The proper solution would be a confluence of an eliptical with a Segway.
