Steven at TechLore wrote an article about his experience over the past year with a Segway i180.
Steven summarized answers to the six most popular questions he is typically asked. Apparently, the top speed of the Segway is 12MPH and it will drive a distance of 22 miles on one charge. Also, it only takes 30 seconds to learn how to ride it and the Segway does all the balancing for you.
While he doesn’t recommend getting one for yourself… it sounds like if you can afford one, it’s worth it for a geek! Afterall, whoever has the most toys wins right?
