Segway’s got its own hoverboard


The $798 Segway MiniPRO is a scaled-down version of the full mallcop.

I keep an eye on these personal scooters and hoverboards, because I’m looking for an alternative to the car that’s not too expensive, and also fun, and practical. The alternatives I’ve seen — including this one — fit two of those criteria at best.

A bicycle would be perfect if we lived in another neighborhood, but we have too many hills. An electric bicycle might be a good option, but they’re too expensive.
