The first self balancing e-skate
The new Segway Drift W1 uses Segway’s proven, stable self-balancing technology (built on more than 800 patents), giving it an unparalleled advantage in terms of technology.
Self-balancing will help a wider range of people ride them, looks like you don't need special boots or shoesCons:
Short wheel base will make it hard to keep self-balancing going on rough terrain, and will require a lot of power/short range compromise
I'm keen to see anything happen which can make better use of existing transport corridors and allow each traveller to choose their own route, time of departure and destination. But it looks like Segway Drift W1 riders would need to share existing pedestrian corridors with unpredictable, fragile pedestrians who will resent anything travelling faster than a pedestrian sharing their space.alan jones has never used this product.
Anything new is worth trying at leastCons:
It could merely draw interest and fade like a fad
Really interested in seeing how they compare to rollerblades and roller skates.Stoner has never used this product.
