Segway Personal Transporter
|The Segway PT (personal transporters) are one really cool bit of Technology. They are a two wheel battery powered vehicle, because they are battery powered, the Segway transporters emit 0 CO2 emissions. You steer the transporter by leaning - forwards is faster, back is slower, left is left and right is right. The top speed of the Segway PT is 20km/h, which can be maintained for around an hour on one battery. Segway PT works on almost any terrain, due to their structure, and the way they are built.|
The company Segway was founded in 1999 by Dean Kamen. In 2002, Segway sold its first three transporters - on Amazon.com - for the sum total of $364,800. Shortly after Popular Science Magazine awarded the Segway PT with a Best of What's New Award in the general technology category.
|There are now many different types of Segway PT. In the table below there are some of the currently available Segway Transporters.|
Designed for easy operation over normal terrain
Designed with size and muscle for off-road
Designed for your daily commute
Currently Segway Transporters cost a lot, but I think that soon everyone will have a Segway PT. I really want my own, and I bet loads of other people do too!
