Ski Science: Segway shoes for skiing the concrete

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on October 27, 2009 6:16 pm

Personal Mobility Devices (PMD) are shepherding us into the era of the muscle-less human.  Soon the day will arrive where we can all just Jabba the Hutt out and fulfill our destiny as big, fat slugs.  Walking?  Riding a bike?  So 2009!

Nissan & AIST have partnered up to create the skier’s version of a PMD.  Step on to the foot boards, grab the poles, and go!  The device has tilt sensors that change direction depending on which way you lean.  Ski the concrete, just don’t try sliding hand rails on these bad boys.
