What is Segway?
A Segway is a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle. You will control the Segway with your body. The user commands the Segway to go forward by shifting their weight forward on the platform, and backward by shifting their weight backwards. It stops as soon as you stand upright.
