the poor man’s segway

Skate Segway

Well, maybe it’s not entirely a Segway, but it’s the right idea. these ubc students went and drew up the plans for a skateboard based segway-like vehicle. they dubbed it “emanual” after the skateboard trick called the manual (come on, you at least played tony hawk for playstation right?). they awesome part is that it works. took a few years, but hey, good things take time. it uses electronic tilt sensors to keep you from falling over and has it’s own control system.
