Ninebot a next gen Segway that makes sense

The Segway like a lot of early smartphones failed to live up to consumer expectations...

 Smart Phones of old failed The Segway looked dorky

The world wasn't ready for the Segway PT in 2001, it was very expensive, struggled with it's perception, wasn't needed and fell foul of regulation in many countries where it was banned from sidewalks.

Now it's 2015 and a lot has changed for the better, while Segway still exists the Ninebot has solved a lot of it's original problems:

The iPhone has received much recognition for its design The sleek Ninebot E
  • Ninebot E is half the price of a comparable Segway
  • Ninebots overall design is more contemporary and sleeker,
  • It's available with handsfree options
  • And now you can download smartphone apps to enhance the Ninebot usability experience.

Unfortunately everything else about transport seems to be getting worse. 

  • Gas is no longer at 2001 prices ($1.47 per gallon)
  • Public transport is becoming increasingly overburdened
  • Making a trip to the local convenience store turns in to a major outing when you can't finding parking 
  • Traffic congestion has continued to deteriorate with roads at the worst during the morning and evening rush hours

A recent report released by the Treasury Department has found that traffic congestion wastes 1.9 Billion Gallons of gas each year in the US alone. According to the Treasury Department’s findings, congested roads and traffic jams cost American drivers more than $100 billion a year in wasted fuel and lost time. If you live in one of the 10 US cities with the worst traffic jams you can probably relate!
