Ride Fly: Segway DIY

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/4317930%5D

The video above is the final working DIY Segway from [sb-scooter]. The website and build log don’t have a lot of information at the moment, but you can still gawk at several pictures of the construction (and a picture is worth 1000 German words).

For those looking for the nitty gritty, with some quick math we figure its two 500 watt motors, powered by 12Ah batteries, will last about 90 minutes. If you’re looking for more details or to build your own, you’re as lost as we are.

  1. This looks like a nice implementation, but it is far, far, from being original. If you want a write-up, in English, with info on how to build your own version, check out Trevor Blackwell’s project page:


    As far as I know, he was one of the first (if no the first) person to throw together a DIY Segway.

  2. i remember when it was called ‘ginger’ or something. if that’s the same guy who built it from duct tape, then you’re right. but if it is the same guy, he must have cleaned up his design. i remember LOTS of duct tape. but i thought it was on HaD back then. sadly, all i can find is that guy that’s been linked to twice.
