    All they need to do is solve the recharging problem. Batteries required to power things like those take anywhere from thirty minutes to a full day to charge. :\
    At least, I think so.

    include an extra battery when you buy the iReal and make it easy to swap them out. That way you never actually need to wait for a charge.

    I think the biggest hurdle they`re going to have to overcome is the Segway stigma - that is, looking like a huge dork while driving it.

    Here`s the issue:
    You could drive to work in it. You could work in it. You could sleep in it.
    That`s no vehicle, that replaces your legs & furniture.

    Then again, it would really suck to get robbed in that.

    It has a tiny wheelbase and looks alarmingly top heavy. I wonder how it`d cope with anything other than the unrealistically perfect and pothole-free road they`re testing it on.

    So all this is, is a really fast, hi-tech, lit up wheelchair that can communicate with another I-real?

    Isn`t it called a BIKE, and a CELL PHONE?

    I liked it but it just seems like the next level of laziness. at least with the segway you are using SOME muscles to hold yourself up and to lean. I liked the 20mph part but imagine all the "poor" people who can`t afford it you are going to be pissing off. or the people on the road when you`re cruising in the bike lane.

    the coffee idea was lame too, unless you can sync it with a phone and "text" (yes, this isn`t a verb) to your friends. make it more like the iPhone app that lets your friends know where you are with gps.

    I-real £2,000 and you look like the bad guy from a dodgey science fiction movie

    Half decent mountain bike about £300 and you can go cross country on it

    no competition

    overall it`s a good idea. it holds less people so there`d be less stops if you need to go somewhere. no gas (at least i dont think) and easier to control than a car, so less accidents. it`s good for the enviornment and for people. too bad the average sized person in the US is bigger than that chair :/

    this would be a great replacement for wheelchairs and rascal scooters for disabled people. but only people who cannot walk should use anything like this.
