Default What do you guys think about the new Segway Drift W1?

JohnG posted about the new Segway "e-skates" earlier...

The intro/promo video (47 seconds):

And the press release, with photos:

What do you guys think? I imagine they could be fun--but I also assume they are for relatively smooth pavement only?

I also assume that they communicate with each other wielessly for a smoother ride (i.e. to make sure they stay underneath the rider)...but I don't have any confirmation on that.

The launch party seems to be end-of-August. May be released in Europe and/or Asia before the USA...not sure. I'm assuming this is a holiday 2018 item.

In any case, of course I want to try a pair eventually

In the videos the riders seem to be flailing their arms in order to keep balance. Not for me.
