I'm still waiting for a movie to have a segway chase scene.

I'm gullible. Is this a joke? Those pics look photoshop-ed.

I thought the same thing. I can't verify it but it sure struck me in a funny way and it wouldn't surprise me if they were trying these stunts.

I'm guessing that they are fake. Those things have no acceleration. No way can they get height let alone speed for a flip or something.

I agree completely...

The lighting on the Segways (sp?) doesn't match the rest of the photo... In fact, the lighting on the Segways is the same in every photo. (In the first photo it is obvious that the BMX bike has been removed from the image because the "sky" behind the Sedway does not match the sky behind the rider -- notice the lack of photo grain behind the Segway and how there is an abrupt change from smooth sky to grainy sky at the handlebars of the Segway.)

I use PhotoShop every day at work and I add and remove things from photos all the time. Whoever doctored these photos needs to learn how to use the "Healing Brush" tool to make their edits seamless. tongue.gif

This might warrant a new thread, over in a different forum (e.g. Science and Technology), but this was the only thread I could find on Segway, so ... (moderators, feel free to split/move this post, if that seems appropriate) ...

Segway recalls all scooters

Segway Inc. is recalling all 23,500 of the self-balancing scooters it has shipped to date because of a software glitch that can make its wheels unexpectedly reverse direction, causing riders to fall off -- and in at least one incident, break some teeth. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, with whom Segway is cooperating on the voluntary recall announced Thursday, said consumers should stop using the vehicles immediately.
