Segway, Meet the Winglet

Toyota is working on a stand-up scooter like the Segway. It is more maneuverable then the Segway, but slower. (It goes 3.7 mph, and the Segway goes up to 12.5 mph.) For more information, go to:

Toyota unveiled the Winglet at Toyoto's showroom in Aomi, Tokyo, Aug. 1, 2008. For the accompanying story see

It looks cool. Whether or not I’ll get depends on the price. My guess is that it will cost too much, but who knows?

Then again, at three miles an hour, I might as well walk. Or ride my bike.
