As a stunt to show how great they are, a SHT (Segway Human Transporter) climbed Mount Washington. It only took the SHT (can I buy a vowel?) 2 1/2 hours and six sets of batteries. Plus three 'drivers'.
And it took Tom Danielson just a hair over 51 minutes on his bike.
Saw one in my neighborhood last weekend. The apocalypse draws nigh.
