    it bothers me greatly when something has a set and very ambitious marketing strategy. give me a cool product that doesnt make me feel like a consumer, a slice of a pie graph and we have a deal.


    damn beard, drop the price of that thing like $2999. and it would be up your alley...:)

    i think this could be big.
    think of the reduction in our fuel usage and the cut down on pollution.
    once this catches on it could be a very important invention. just remember that the first pc's costed over 5000$ and were very basic. think of this in 5 years when it's going tree times the speed and running all day on a few hours of charging.

    It is cool. But it seems like the lazyman's bicycle. I cant wait to see all the tech-savy gadget-freaks rolling around on those contraptions. I would much rather have a bike.

    I think this was the most disturbing thing I've read about this so far:

    "This is the world's first self-balancing human transporter," Kamen said. "It does what a human does -- it has gyros and sensors that act like your inner ear; it has a computer that does what your brain does for you. It's got motors that do what your muscles do for you. It's got those tires that do what your feet do for you."

    personally, i don't mind that my brain, muscles and feet can do on their own what they have evolved to do. i think if i ever see anybody using one of these i'm going to tell them what a fucking lazy waste of space they are and that they should shoot themselves in the face and quit wasting oxygen.

    but since that guy mentioned it, i could really go for a gyro right now.
