Segway almost as efficient as walking

2002-02-12 21:46:50+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Via Segway News, the Post Office finds Segway almost as efficient as walking. Mail carriers can't sort while they ride the Segway, and it has problems on rough sidewalks, so carriers aren't able to deliver more mail per person. On the up side, their feet hurt less. I wonder how many mail carriers enjoy the walking?

Maybe we'll get some used ones cheap soon... to play with robots!

Ooooh. Government surplus. I hadn't thought about this up-side.

Too bad the Harry Potter craze is over, I wanted to do one up like a broom. And I'd love to try a set of straps to attach the handlebars to my waist so I could ride one no-handed.
