Hover-chair Segay S-Pod
Consumer 2020 CES kicks off next week. Many companies pre-announce products that will be presented at the exhibition. One of these was the Segway, she presented a futuristic chair S-Pod, according to our colleagues . For many, this can mean only one thing — we're one step closer to the future that popularized movies of 2000-ies. One of these was multifilm WALL-E, the characters of which moved on special chairs and were overweight. Star wars fans can remember the chair Power chair. Wheels it had, but who knows, maybe this future is also very close.
In the chair of S-Pod uses balancing technology, developed which the company itself. It creates the same magic of perfect balance. Given the rather big size of the chair, the effect of the balance seems even stronger. And how do you new Segaway? Offer to discuss it .
Features of the S-Pod it is possible to allocate the opportunity to carry people weighing up to 120 kilograms. Sale S-Pod is supposed to start in 2021, the company does not disclose the cost of such a device, but plans to use them in enclosed spaces. One of the best examples may be the airport where mobility and at the same time compactness of the vehicle for employees. It can also be used in parks, as the maximum speed at 12 miles it allows. But interestingly, it can be extended programmatically to 40 kilometers per hour. In this case, use an S-Pod in parks is not under the law. In most cities there is a limit of 32 kilometers per hour.
Segway S-Pod in action
The Chair Segway can travel on a single charge of the battery 69 kilometers, which is enough to drive from home to work and back in most cases, so this form of transport can be a good option to replace the car.
Good because today cars are used inefficiently. Typically, in conventional vehicles moved by one person, and four. The transition to the mode of transport like the S-Pod will significantly reduce the emission of harmful gas into the atmosphere, to reduce the number of traffic jams and reduce the number of accidents due to lower speed of this transport.
Of Course, objectively, until you can replace the usual cars, but we are moving in this direction. And even Tesla cars today seem to be not very good and effective option in the matter of form factor.
Another example use Segaway can be a small tour group, to move which today typically use electric Golf cars. And, of course, you can replace the usual wheelchair.
The Owners of the wheelchair system will seem familiar. Here is a small joystick on the right side of the case. This option, of course, good and it seems optimal, but the company could come up with something more original on the basis of the motion sensors by analogy with the Motion Sense and Project Soli.
In November, the Ministry of transport has developed amendments to the SDA, according to these amendments, Russia will have a new form of transport — the so-called SIM (means of individual mobility). To them, it was decided to include the Segway, blisks, skateboards, roller skates, Segways and gyrometer. For this type of transport was invented by the individual characters of the SDA. The transport Ministry broke drivers the Sims for some age categories: under 7 years over 7 years but under the age of 14 years and older 14 years.
The Latter will be able to use Sims on bike paths or lanes, and roadway Cycling zones. But this is true only in the case that a person over the age of 14. Otherwise use the roadway will be impossible. Read more with the new rules can be found .
