Segway Product Recall

So you’re just minding your own business, trundling down the street on your very own ‘personal transporter’, and what happens? Suddenly your world starts going in reverse and there’s nothing you can do about it! Well that appear to be the story from Segway. A bug in the operating software which “can unexpectedly reverse the direction of the wheels which can cause a rider to fall”.

I guess lets all hope that the bug isn’t time based too. Can you imagine the panic in the streets as pedestrians take flying leaps onto the nearest road to avoid being flattened by an out of control Segway. Not the mention the poor unfortunate soul holding on for dear life!

The reg has full details on it here.
