My thoughts from the last time I rode it are the same: it’s amazing how natural it feels. For a while, I was having a cell phone call while I was screaming from one side of the conference room to the other. Never once was I afraid of losing my balance (the people in my path may have been afraid, but I wasn’t…). There’s no learning curve — it just works.
Corey had me on the slow version, but it was as fast as I was willing to go. The day before, I had spent some time walking around a quarter-million square foot manufacturing building, and I couldn’t help but think how the Segway would have come in handy.
Then I looked at my waistline, and decided the walk was probably good for me. That’s the thing with new techno gadgets — they’re all designed to make us fatter and lazier.
