Wow -- interesting, but the NOISE of the thing! Geez!

I could see it catching on in Japan, but not here; maybe with techno-hipsters, but that's about all -- for one thing, I'm not sure the motors could handle the extra weight of the average American (and that's not even addressing the obese sub-group). I can also see a LOT of personal injuries due to collisions on the sidewalks when alphas fail to cooperate and share ROW.

I agree CT. Could you see that thing in downtown Manhattan ?

I can see SHARDS of them, blood-spattered, in a Mad-Mad-esque scene of carnage on a street corner, with a broken-windowed cab in the background, and two ragged-suited yups sitting in exhausted defeat a couple feet apart.

I have seen the future! It's full of novelty gadgets and ceaseless distractions. Huxley you were right. Amazing all the same. What an age to live in.
