A little more about Segway
The Segway is a two-wheeled, personal transportation vehicle, it is self-balancing electric vehicle produced by Segway USA.
Computers and motors in the base of the device keep the Segway upright when powered on with balancing enabled. Users lean forward to go forward, lean back to go backward, and turn by using a "Lean Steer" handlebar, leaning it left or right.
Segway are driven by electric motors at up to a speed of 20 km / hour.
The Segway is built simply to stay balanced in one place. It is designed to mirror the process of human walking.
The Segway intuitively balances the way humans do—moving forward and backward, responding to changes in your body's position. There is no accelerator and no brakes.
All you have to do is to lean forward and you move forward. Straighten up and you stop. If you lean back, then you move back. To turn, rotate the steering grip under your wrist in either direction.
The operation of the Segway is natural, intuitive, enjoying and very easy, and is one of the primary reasons Segway has become so popular.
