GM and Segway new balancing two-wheeler transport project

My ex-boss, when talking about the language of disability, always used to tell people that “wheelchair bound” should refer to those who do not use a wheelchair, as they’re potentially headed there and we’ve already arrived!

Well, now take a look at this experimental vehicle from Segway. See, he was right!

The Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project (P.U.M.A. for short) will seek to develop a self balancing two-wheeled vehicle capable of reaching speeds of 35 mph.

There is a two-seat prototype vehicle that has only two wheels.
