Segway is known for offering all kinds of different scooters and self-transportation devices. The new S-Pod seems weird, however.
This is a Professor-X-like moving chair that allows you to sit comfortably in a moving wheelchair that you can control and go anywhere you want. The S-Pod is very interesting and in some ways quite fun to drive.
The idea here is that you don’t need to find any balance whatsoever. You have a joystick controller on the right side of the seat and from there you can control how you move. Those that got to test it said it’s very responsive and you won’t hit anyone as you have complete control over your speed and how or where you turn.
However, this is quite large, it’s not the simple piece of equipment you usually see. But then again, it’s visually stunning and you will appreciate its versatility and great ease of use.
The unit tells you its battery levels, you have turn signals on the side and there’s even a horn button, which is interesting.
That being said, the S-Pod is designed to be very versatile and a pleasure to drive, although we don’t know when it will eventually arrive on the market.
