Segway Scooter in need of new innovations

Segway Scooter in need of innovative updates, for all hope it lacks the latest and greatest technological advancement and does not impress everyone. The Segway Team? Will I get the latest technology though? About this idea:

These guys are brilliant no doubt, but we were able to send them right back to the drawing board to fix their ideas. Let's start with the & # 39; s most basic component, namely "The Wheel" is an old component and if you want to build something revolutionary, build it without wheels and without touching the ground and without the need for recharging. It can be designed better. Here's how. Take Bruce DePalma's perpetual motion machine to create the energy, so by adding such a feature you wouldn't need recharging and without the wheels you could move more weight faster with less energy. How do you say First of all, with hydro-cushioned technology such as is used on hover craft. And remember you only want to move a human body that we are talking on average 250 Lbs. To do this and keep the air below you, place a small chest protection system underneath the device where you are standing. Then blow 1-2 lbs. of air with low pressure below. Hardly any power needed to lift 250 Lbs or less. This will lift the thing off the ground.

So instead of wheels, the thing is magical and hanging, way better and more state of the art as well. Now put 18 small jets that move the air in the intended direction of travel to the gyroscope or small circuit board, which is a miniature laser ring gyro to prevent it from falling as you send it by shifting your weight . As you move by moving your body weight, the designed jets move you from side to side while simultaneously running through the gyro. The system will prevent you from turning around like an F-16 & # 39; s system that prevents the pilots from G & # 39; s turn so that the aircraft does not deviate from flight or the pilot is black out. Now you have a mobile hover with gyro, works exactly the same and does not need fuel. Like back to the future ehy? It works physically. I once met the guy who built the first hydro-cushioned car, looked like a little fitting saucer, he used it around Los Angeles on the # 101 Freeway in the & # 39; a 1960 & # 39; s. He was paranoid because the establishment came to him because of his involvement with big business and General Motors and the auto industry. I met him in Denny & # 39; s in Woodland Hills, CA in 1996. Its technology now moves 100,000 Lb. pallets with refueling aircraft on them during the production cycle in Everette WA. He also designed the hydro-cushioned bullet train that was never built, but was a project to bring people to Las Vegas from Los Angeles on high-speed rail, which would keep the trains ground. No friction does not mean much lost energy.

Someone needs to challenge the Segway Team to continue to innovate and not cut consumers short. The unit should continue the technology trend to be the best, frankly it's still not good enough and that's a huge amount of venture capital to pay back for technology yesterday, even at $ 5,000 a pop. Am I too hard on this beautiful invention? Oh probably, but if the manufacturers aren't in it to win it and won't push themselves, then maybe we can help. We need to challenge these guys so they can build it better. Considering the wonderful publicity they've received, including the US president trying to get one, why can't they inspire them to take this technology to the next level, now it's 2003 for God & # 39; s Business. In addition to enhancing my improvements, it could also be used on water. You could cross a lake, rescue a sinking boat, it has thousands of other uses, you could even sweep the driveway with it. Or build a robot that wobbles and hovers for you?

I don't mean to be critical, but if you have that kind of money to blow up venture capital, why don't you & # 39; build a better mouse trap?
