I’m NOT dissing the invention, because it looks amazing fun.
But what a lead balloon of a name!! The “Segway Human Transporter” - initials S.H.T. - arrrgghh!!!
So can anyone think of a better name for what could be the coolest Christmas presents for any lucky rich kids?!! (Sadly I’m not among them - maybe I’ll sign up for the US Postal Corps instead).
For example - the EGG - the Exciting Gyroscopic Gizmo.
I’m guessing that the “SEG” part already stands for something, like the “Self Something Something Way”.
It’s like Toyota putting TRD on their trucks. Who wants to drive around with TURD on his car?
Hmm… I assumed it was a trademarkable play on “segue”, as in “to proceed without pause”. I’m betting the “HT” part will fall away now that people know what IT is.
The Flywheeled LOcal Perambulator.
All I want to know is if I can catch air on that thing!
Call it the Weeble cause it can’t fall down!
The $100 million Weeble that is.
I’ve already predicted in another thread that it will be the Edsel of the 21st century. A lovely Edsel. A brilliant Edsel. But an Edsel nonetheless.
I just can’t wait to get one of those things and soup up the engine and race that baby against gopeds! Heeeeell yeah!
I’m glad I’m not the only one who saw this connection. But maybe they mean it as, “This thing is the sh*t.”
