New Segway Patroller provides mall cops a 3rd wheel
Whenever you consider a Segway, often a self-balancing, barely dorky two-wheeled contraption involves thoughts, proper? Nicely, overlook all that. The corporate has simply dedicated heresy by launching the SE-three Patroller, a 3-wheeled, entrance-steering mannequin. It is focused solely at regulation-enforcement officers, meter enforcement varieties and, ahem, safety personnel — which make up the corporate’s most profitable market by far. It is extremely seen in an effort to deter crime with headlights, brake lights, sirens, emergency lights and a slightly non-practical-wanting (however lovable) visor. It additionally packs rider detection to close the car off when not occupied and a four.three-inch knowledge display. All of that is available in at $12,000 for a car you possibly can’t even sit down on — in contrast to arch-competitor T3 Movement’s mannequin. Nonetheless, there’s little or no probability cops’ll tip the factor over, a standard Segway blunder that does not precisely shock and awe the dangerous guys.
