Segway redesigns scooter
BOSTON, Massachusetts (Reuters) -- The maker of the Segway scooter Monday unveiled the second generation of its self-balancing electric one-person vehicle.
The redesigned scooter allows the rider to steer by leaning to the right or left, rather than by turning the handlebars. It also features a wireless electric key and alarm system.
The scooters feature two side-by-side wheels, and are ridden in a standing position, with the rider grasping handlebars. A gyroscope provides balance, making it fairly easy to remain in the upright position.
