Quick! Everyone! Lets Make A Segway Chair!

LOL All teams make one for next year, so you can ride it around in your local competitions… LOL coding on the go! I forgot to bring a chair this year so it sucked, now the chair goes with me!:smiley:

Well I doubt it can get past the front gates because of “safety first”

EPIC WIN!!!:smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

That chair looks like it could be disastrous if the power failed.

If you build one of these, please put some sort of “anti-tip” rollers either forward or rear to stop high velocity cranial impact.

Actually, is looks like a tip on a regular segway would be worst. If this falls, you jump to your feet. On a regular segway (assuming some oddball complete failure which is very rare) you would end up doing a face plant.

If this falls backward, it’s far worse than the segway…

At champs, 461 had a homemade segway made out of 80/20 and lexan, and powered by CIM motors. According to them, it cost about $800, including the fancy $400 lithium-ion batteries.

Eeek, Lithium ion is daaangerous. They should be using Lithium Iron Phosphate. Much more stable, and just as light/energy dense.

Check out Ping Battery for some good ones.
