Chariot Wearable Transporter: Part Segway, Part Cyborg

Legs just aren’t what they used to be. Human limbs used to be the driving force behind America’s booming industry, once ushering in a new age of wealth.

Forget The Recession: Chanel Segway

Karl Lagerfeld wants you to know that even though he’s old and the head of Chanel, he can still crank out innovative, wallet-busting products that are completely unnecessary. Take this Chanel Segway, for instance.

Personal Transportation Device Joins Skiing With Segway

After seeing some totally unsatisfactory uses of the Segway, I have built up a bad taste for the user base of the personal transport device (with the exception of this dude.)

The Monster Truck Of Segways

If customizing your Segway’s frame wasn’t hardcore enough for you, I’ve got a whole new idea for all of you Seg-fans (but not so much her.)

Custom Segway: Pimpin’ Your Personal Ride

Segway Moms are the new Soccer Moms

Spotted in Seattle, this ingenious woman pushes her baby stroller while cruising around on her Segway. Talk about laziness. And by the looks of her, she could afford to work some of that junk in her trunk off. That can’t be safe for the kid either. One foul curve on a hill, and that baby goes squish. She wins the ...
