Being the bicycle enthusiast that I am I can’t help but notice this cool new toy from Segway. It’s great how it can maneuver in tight spaces and stay on two wheels at high speed. The possibilities for this technology seem very promising (as long as it isn’t used for military purposes). I bet it is going to be VERY expensive if it comes to market. Check out the official Centaur Concept website or read on for a short prototype video from YouTube.
