Segway's S-Pod Brings the Hoverchairs From 'WALL-E' to Life


Segway Is Bringing the Hoverchairs From WALL-E to Life

You’ll soon be able to scoot around town—at 24 mph—without even having to stand up.

In Pixar’s 2008 movie WALL-E, which is set in the 29th century, our adorable, eponymous robot hero travels to the massive luxury space cruiser the Axiom. When he arrives, he finds that all of humanity has evolved into boneless consumerist blobs, eating constantly, babbling at screens, and lounging in high-speed, floating chairs.

Luckily, or unluckily, for us, we might not have to wait that long. Next week, Segway will debut new personal transporter pods at CES, the huge annual consumer electronics show in Las Vegas. It’s called the S-Pod, and it doesn’t float. Instead, it uses Segway’s self-balancing technology to propel the user forward on two wheels, while sitting down.
