– Hey everybody, thisis Sean from The Verge and I’m about to ride Segway’s newest two motored vehicle the S-pod. When it starts disappearing.( upbeat music) So this is Segway’s newest two pedaled self offsetting vehicle. It’s called the S-pod. You can see I’m obviouslyin a accommodated post so I don’t have to stand up like beings usually do on a Segway. And the idea here is that you can do all the same things that youwould normally do in a Segway. Maybe tour a city, get around campus, but you can do it fromthis nice tightened prestige where you’re able to seeall the lovely people who are watching you looklike a technological clown. Now one of the wildestthings about the Segway S-pod is that it’s controlledby this little joystick on the side of the thing.So I’m in full controlof this movement here. And it can get up to 24 milesan hour which is insane. Right now it’s cappedat 7 1/2 miles per hour which on this little trackis definitely plenty. We don’t know when thisthing will be on sale. Segway says therethinking about selling it to customers but theywant to start with sort of sails and campuses andthings like that first. Watch out Phil( giggles ). But you can expect that if and when they do sell it to parties it’sgonna cost a pretty penny. So you’re more likely to see this show up in maybe a city tour ormaybe on a corporate campus or something like that.It’s pretty rock solid. Like I’m having a little bit of trouble getting used to the joy stick speed but otherwise thisthing does not feel like it’s gonna tip over. You know some peoplehave looked at this thing since got announced a duet weeks ago and wondered why is it two wheels, why isn’t it three or four. If you have three rotations onthis short of a wheelbase and you were trying to maketurns like I’m making now, you’d be on the floor already. I will say it’s kind of comfortable. There’s like a suede padding on the seat. It’s not very cushy but for anearly prototype of this thing it’s pretty well put together.There’s a little flare barroom next to me that “ve been told” how much artillery is left. The report contains glowings on the back of the thing that will tell peoplewhich way I’m turning which right now is just sortof right and right again. There’s a little button for horn which doesn’t seem to work right now. And there’s a tablet in the other side that sounds out which youcan use to remotely control the S-pod as well. Now you might look at thisand think that it’s something for people who have trouble moving around. And it is a good one could serve that role. It’s stable enough thatI feel like someone who has mobility challengesmight be able to use it. But we know Segway and we knowwhat Segways are used for. They wind up being the thing you use when you go to WashingtonDC and wanna expedition the city or move around a plaza if you’re plaza cop.And so I would expectthat’s where we’re gonna recognize these things first. Segway says it’s going to ultimately try and sell the S-pod to consumers. Who known to be much that’ll rate. But what I can tell you is this. It may search a little weirdbut what Segway doesn’t. And it’s definitely fun to drive.( chuckles) Woo! I’ll get it right this time. Whoa, all right( roars ). So this,( mocks) whoa. I’m coming for you( chuckles ). -[ Man] Love it! – Stopping power leaveslittle to be wanted ..
