These new Segway self balancing skates look super uncool... but I'd love to try them.

@rrhoover Super uncool? Their site disagrees: “Perfect for the young generation who dare to stand out and create new trends.”

I see Segway's track record of "so-sexy-you-have-to-fight-off-the-admirers" personal mobility vehicles continues unabated. Seriously, though: someday, someone will craft the personal mobility paradigm that wins and can evolve with changing tastes. Maybe this is it, I doubt it.

@dankaplan Steve Jobs was quoted saying the Segway would be "as big as the personal computer", until he saw the final design which he thought sucked. There's huge potential there, the technology is great. But just like with PC's, it needs to be sexy and desirable to take off.
What are thoooseee 👀
