Product Description

Amazon.com

After months of hype, rumor, and speculation, the Segway Human Transporter--formerly known by the code names Ginger and IT--has been unveiled. Using a process called dynamic stabilization, the Segway HT works with human equilibrium and responds to movements; lean forward and the HT will accelerate, tilt backward and it will come to a stop. You can also perform full turns, achieve speeds of up to 12.5 miles per hour, and get up to 17 miles out of a single charge. The HT runs on either ni-cad or NiMH batteries; to recharge, simply plug the unit into an AC outlet.

The first HT model weighs 80 pounds and has a 250-pound passenger payload (future versions are expected to support over 300 pounds). It also features an adjustable control shaft, Intelligent Key technology (a private code which starts and locks your HT), an eight-inch-high platform, silica wheels (each with an independent, emission-free engine), and, perhaps most importantly, five gyroscopes and two tilt sensors which work together to ensure balance and safety on varying terrain.

Ultimately, the Segway HT raises questions on the future of transportation. Is it a viable alternative to urban congestion? Can it be more freeing than a walk in the park? Who knows? While some pundits have already labeled the HT a glorified Razor scooter, many people most certainly can't wait to get their feet on one.

Highlights:

  • Revolutionary battery-powered personal transporter
  • Scoots up to 17 miles on a single charge
  • Turns on a dime safely
  • Speeds up to 12.5 mph
  • Steers from human movement
