The Machines

The Segway personal transporter is a two-wheeled electric vehicle used as a convenient way to travel around most places on earth. ( deep water excluded )It is a self-balancing device and its name is derived from the Latin word 'Segue' which means a smooth transition from one place to another.

The motorized vehicle uses five gyroscopes to remain upright at all times and it is controlled by the direction in which the rider leans. Inside the chassis are two electric brush-less motors that give the machine a total of 3.8 horse power. All governed by five microchips and two powerful computers.Even in the event of Segway failure there are back up systems which will prevent you and the machine from sudden turn off

The Segway has a top speed of 21 km/h (12.5 mph).Believe us its fast enough!Thoughh the tour always starts in the Turtle mode which is not so sensitive for the first time glider.Zero emissions are given off during operation.Electricity used to recharge causes fourteen times less greenhouse gas emissions than driving a car. The Segway PT is fifteen times more efficient than the average European car and over four times more efficient than even the highest-mileage scooters. But we must admit the Tesla S P100D model is the one you want to drive if you want to be a true eco hippie. It is the car we want to buy from profits we make on this project :D

The Segway PT was designed by Dean Kamen, an american entrepreneur and inventor with Czech , and was unveiled in 2001 before being mass produced in 2002.
