Segways

The Segway Personal Transporter is a self-balancing, two-wheeled technological marvel.  The science behind it is so advanced that it allows the rider to enjoy the adventure with little to no effort.  Though they may be intimidating and scary at first, new riders quickly discover that the Segways do all the work.  The rider simply stands on the Segway, and through little movement, the Segway moves along with ease, allowing the rider to do nothing but enjoy the ride.

The Segway looks like your neighborhood warehouse Hand Truck with it's large two wheels but it will easily balance you all by it's self. Why? Because the Segway actually has more in common with the human body's biomechanics than you would think.  Our mind is a fascinating machine and so is the Segway. Our bodies seem stable when we move but we are actually in a state of continual falling. When our bodies lean forward,the fluid in our inner ear shifts, sponstaneously send a signal to the brain to place a foot down and stop us from falling.The Segway works on the same idea, instead of legs it has wheels. We use our muscles and the Segway uses a collection of microprocessors which is it's brain. Just like your brain the Segway knows when you are leaning foward and it will go foward.There are sophisticated tilt sensors located under the front and back foot pads of the Segway which subtly shifts the riders balance. The Gyroscopic sensors help maintain a steady position on the Segway no matter which way it moves or how fast its moving.These sensors pass this information to the device’s brain—two circuit boards containing 10 microprocessors—at a rate of over 100 messages per second. The Segway has two high powered motors for its size which uses magnets to make it go. These 2 Segway motors can keeps going even if one motor should fail. The software quickly interprets the shift and sends directions to the motors that drive the wheels moving which KEEPS YOU HAVING FUN and ENJOYING THE RIDE.

Segways have minimum age limits depending on location…call for details.
