Segway S-Pod crashes at tech show!

The Segway S-Pod has crashed at the CES show while being demonstrated to the crowds

THE Segway S-pod has been crashed by a journalist during a demonstration of the machine at the CES show in Las Vagas.

The S-Pod, which is a cross between an egg chair and a Segway scooter, was being tried out by a journalist on the Segway stand at the CES 2020 show. BBC reports that while trying to manoeuvre the vehicle on the stand, the rider accelerated the machine, crashing it into a wall.

It’s reported that the company also claims that nobody was injured in the incident, which is luck, as the machine is capable of 24mph – at that speed in a crowded exhibition hall you could do a lot of damage!

"In no way is [a malfunction] a total loss. It is still a sign to the public that the company is close to the finished product," said Ross Rubin, principal analyst at Reticle Research. The crash meant the demo-rides on the machine had to be canned for the reminder of the day.

The S-Pod is controlled by shifting the user’s body weight, you lean forward to accelerate, or back to slow down. Segway claim that in some markets it will feature a seatbelt and top speeds will be limited. (Incidentally, Segway kept its landmark two-wheeled design for the S-Pod, rather than adding four wheels, because it allows a more adaptive centre of gravity to prevent the S-Pod from tipping.)

Segway hope to see the Segway used in large indoor spaces like airports, exhibition halls, and office buildings, as an alternative to walking, taking a bus or taxi of cycling.

I'm not sure if the journalist wanted to show some stunts or just accidentally try to push the joystick to accelerate. If it is his/her first time, he/she must understand how to move and ride the vehicle. Anyway, for quality Boulder epoxy flooring services, I recommend you opt for http://boulderepoxyflooring.com/.

"That was unexpected. Fortunately, nothing bad occurred and everyone was safe. Some safety measures should be taken while showing such things. Hope they could complete the product with the necessary things and could remodel it soon. Waiting for the release of it.

Cool vehicle. I have tried riding a similar one. Good thing that I was able to drive it without causing an accident though it was hard for me to navigate at first.
