    Hahaha! Not quite as elegant as a bicycle but I guess this is about as fabulous as it gets on a segway. I'll go with Geek-chic.

    Absolutely brilliant!
    Not sure whether it's quite as classy as a bike, but at least it's fun.
    And I do like the way his hat is flicking up slightly in the wind!

    That is so funny. I thought it was Anthony Hopkins and then I scrolled down and saw the wheelie thing. Although it is similar to the thing they wheel him out on on Silence of the Lambs.

    The juxtaposition of the modern segway and the classic hat, scarf, overcoat combo is beautiful. Perfect blending of new and old… even the backdrop plays a part, the old church mixed with the stop light and motorcycles. Incredible.

    The inherent funniness of a person on a Segway is directly proportionate to the seriousness of said person.

    Clown on a Segway? Not that funny.
    Grumpy Michael Arrington on a Segway? Very funny.

    This kind of falls somewhere in between.

    Many years ago, a time that many of us are old enough to remember, pictures of what the future was to be like were all over the place from world of tomorrow magazines to television science programs like Here Come The Seventies and Omnibus… Events like Montreal's Expo67, world fairs and countless science and technology museums showed models and prototypes of what the future might hold. Moving sidewalks and flying cars and the like…This image vividly brings back all of those times visiting the many different places and events with wonder in the eyes and imagination whirling with fantasy(sic).

    As much as these have been maligned at times the image is very much, 'the future is now'.

    Thanks Scott for re-igniting a little bit of nostalgic imagination and the freshness of childhood too often lost in the all too easily jaded world of adulthood. Thank you for bringing back that sensation of wonder and imagination in this all grow'd up child's eyes of so many yester-years and days gone by!

    Such a small world! I was watching Iron Man this afternoon and one of the characters used that bike, except it was black and seemed to be used for long but short distances, if that makes any sense!!
    I feel its just a bit different from the norm, probably why so many of the viewers can't see it as classy, its new, take a while to get used to, but heyy, let's hope fashion will quickly embrace this new tech!
    Can you imagine this on next season's runways? ;)

    I snorted with laughter when I saw this picture. Regardless of how useful the device is, I will always associated it with Gob from "Arrested Development".

    Here in San Francisco, when the weather is nice you can sometimes spot whole tour groups of people, wearing bike helmets and fanny packs, buzzing about on their Segways. Darting through parks, and maneuvering traffic in perfect, unspoken unison– like a school of fish.

    Reminds me of something I saw in New York a couple of years ago – a similarly elegant older gentlemean on a segway on the Upper East Side.

    A bizarre sight amongst all the traffic!

    This made me giggle. He is oh so serious. If you dare tell him that he is not fashionable and hip and on the cutting edge of EVERYTHING, you would certainly get a mouthful. Love it.

    Love the red sedgeway in contrast with the classic colors of his outfit… also the slightly bent front of his hat indicating speed

    Wow! The Segway is seen on Detroit’s spectacular new waterfront promenade called the Riverwalk; awesome machine. Great photo.
