There is no stick shake or warning before it shuts down?....Thats nothing like a real Segway if thats true!
One of the less understood aspects of the original HT and PT Segway models is that almost everything important to staying upright has a level of redundancy. I do not know whether the new "Segway" products have such redundancy, but I do not think so.

Although Segway riders drove into walls, into each other, fell on ice, snow, and wet grass, very few Segs actually failed and dumped their riders. I think I recall one, maybe. Without redundancy, this record will change.
