Beyond the Segway: Camper Lotus

camperlotus
 
Designer Patty Yuan has stepped beyond the Segway by producing a two seat, two wheel, umm...covered chair thingy specifically for the future of China. I'm behind people innovating specifically for China. In general, I think China will require, and produce, a lot more innovations than any other part of the world in the look here sales viagra next fifty years. If a gyroscopically controlled covered chair thingy is going to cialis for erectile dysfunction take off anywhere, it'll be China.

The thingy, is also called the "Camper Lotus" which made me think it was supposed to be dragged behind a bigger vehicle. It is not. What it is is both pretty and pretty cool. Any small vehicle is great, but they're better when their designed specifically for short trips and are electrically powered. China, with it's monstrous traffic problems and generally difficult to breathe air, needs some options between cars and bicycles. This...covered chair, might provide an excellent solution.

Does it work? Can I buy one?

I really don't understand why Segways haven't completely replaced cars on New York City streets. Traffic in New York averages about 5 miles per hour, as far as I can tell. Segways are faster, more manueverable, can fit in smaller spaces, are _infinitely_ more fun, and are also less expensive.

I understand Segways don't make sense in normal places, but you would think they'd catch on in New York. Anyway, we could also use these little pod cars, although I suspect Segways are a lot more energy-efficient.

Any zero emissions vehicle is good. I love my Segway. I go everywhere I used to go by car, I get there in about the same amount of time, and I'm saving money by the bucket full. Now I enjoy some fresh air while I do it. Having more zero emissions vehicles would mean more fresh air - yay!!! Applause to anyone using zero emissions travel in any form, including walking and cycling too!!!

Trunk Space.
That's the main reason Segways, and cars like this won't replace your Ford Focus any time soon.

That's why in New York we use Public Transportation. It's more efficient and buy cheap cialis faster than a car or a segway. The streets and sidewalks are way too crowded for segways and the road quality is terrible.

The problem, Ed, is that in New York we DONT use public transportation, at least not to the degree that we should, which is why there are tens of thousands of cars and taxis crowding the roads at all times. If those taxis and cars weren't there--or if there were avenues they weren't allowed to generic cialis fedex travel because of segway and/or awesome camper lotus travel--then we would see a drastic reduction in carbon emissions in nyc.

It's this kind of cool concept that will never see the light of day.

Practical considerations like cost, space, ease of use get in the way. :-

I personally thing this is really kool for a city commuter. Like a all weather Segway for 2. I really don't know the energy requirements for the gyroscope balance but I don't think that it could be too high of a drain on it.

I think the design looks great and for short distances only. There's no space for luggages or what-have-yous.
