Another Segway alternative, this time no hands!

Filed under: ,

An inventor named Ulrich Kahlert has created what is essentially a hands free version of the Segway. It's not clear from the site if it's actually a modified Segway or something completely new, but it seems to function similarly except that the rider controls it by squeezing the controls between the knees instead of with handle bars.

The device was originally developed for theatrical use but is also available with a camera rig for movie making. The rig allows the camera operator to move around smoothly while controlling the camera. Top speed of the hands free transporter is 12 mph and you can go about 9 miles while leaving your hands available to do other stuff.
