New Segway released!

It looks like Segway finally got the new one released. I was one of the main contributers to the new steering mech. You can see the patent here.

They decided to go with a simple lean. I also designed and built an active force feedback version of the lean steer with active body positioning. It ended up acting a lot like active suspension since it kept the rider upright eventhough the platform was mocing side to side. It was pretty pricy so I can understand the desire not to increase the price much.
