Lego Segway is the nerdiest way to roll around

Yes. And it’s as awesome as you thought it be. Simon Burfield, the maker of the Lego wheelchair, has forged the nerdiest mode of transportation ever—a Lego Segway. This particular rideable plastic contraption rolls around on two Lego Hailfire wheels. The build is powered by eight motors controlled by four Mindstorms NXT kits and Hitechnic accelerometers. It even has a movable steering handle, just like the real thing.

The only thing this prototype “Legway” is missing are some auto-balancing gyroscopes, so for now, Simon has to do it with some old-fashioned swagger.
