It might have revolutionized public transport in the times of Ben Hur. But even then people would have complained that a horse can eat faster than a Segway can charge.
The funny thing is, after cheap, explosive Chinese self-balancing scooters flooded the market, Segway has been bought out by the Chinese, and is now selling cheap, non-explosive self-balancing scooters under the Ninebot brand.

I am sure it would have taken quite a while to charge a Segway in the days of Ben Hur.

Sandwiches, thank you for linking that. I have watched a few of her videos at double speed while my work day progresses at half speed. So, she is a pretty budget Colin Furze?
