I have to say, aside from the odd red paint job, I would feel far less
self-conscious on a Winglet than on a Segway. Besides, being able to use
it hands free would make it more practical. If the price is right I might
even be tempted to buy one; there is not chance of me buying a Segway.
Not for at its current price.

There's no argument that Segway is a great invention, but the price is too
high, and the marketing is poor (sounds like they're being too careful).

How much would you guess it costs to build a Segway (if you don't count the
overhead)?
