That was my reaction too.

Kind of reminds me of that segway thing.

I do like the way it folds up though. That's the coolest feature.

way better than a segway, a bit faster I think, no?


Now, if it could be powered by a fuel cell,

Nice design concept but falls at the last fence with it's limited range and I suspect it's steep gradient ability. Bicycles on the flat are easy, its the hills that are the problem.
Definitely needs fuel cell or perhaps minature gas turbine generator.

Faster, lighter and cheaper, with similar range as a segway. Pretty good idea, but I think riding a bike is more healthy. Perhaps a clamp-on electric assist for a bike would be a more practical solution?

nice... easy to use in ChCh - lived there for 7 years, but I wouldn't want to be on one of those in Sydney traffic....
