IO Hawk, the Segway-like mover you might actually want, is now available

IO Hawk, the Segway-like mover you might actually want, is now available

Tired of walking around everywhere? The team behind the Segway thought you might be, but their design was awkward at best. the big handlebar rising up from the pedestal made you wonder if you were on some sort of odd scooter, which is counterintuitive when you’re essentially standing still. The IO Hawk, fist unveiled at CES this year, is like a Segway, but ditches the weird handlebar, leaving you free to move about and balance a bit more naturally. For $1,800, it can be yours, too.

Robot Love: Inside Dean Kamen’s FIRST Championship 2014

The screaming in the stadium is so loud, I can hardly hear the announcer.

Brainchild of Dean Kamen - better known perhaps for being the father of the Segway - this is no ordinary robotics competition.

Ewee-PT Takes the Glamor Out of the Segway

Ewee-PT Takes the Glamor Out of the Segway

If you've wanted a Segway, but thought it looked too "flashy" for you, then here's what you've been waiting for. It's the "little sister" of the Segway, and you should take that title to heart. Because, as you can see from the image, there isn't much here that actually looks like a Segway. Other than that curved middle-section and handlebars, it's missing that familiar over-sized base, plus all the plastic you'd want to show off.

ColorWare Paints Segways Now

ColorWare Paints Segways Now

ColorWare is pretty notorious for doing custom paint jobs for your favorite gadgets. iPads and mobile phones, things like that. They were well known for their color-throwing ways, but notorious for the price tags that went along with it.

High-Tech skateboard is a combination of Segway and normal skateboard

I remember watching one of the Back to the Future sequels when I was a kid. When Michael J. Fox road that hover board around the town square I figured that by time I was "grown up" we would all be riding those things.

GoPet personal electric scooter is extra geeky

Every time I go to the mall, I get a chuckle out of the portly security guard that rides around on his Segway. I am pretty sure they based Paul Blart: Mall Cop on the guy. I will admit that the Segway is pretty cool, even if it is uber geeky.
