Segway has finally announced their latest invention nearly two decades after its original creation, and there is something oddly familiar about it.

The newest addition to the Segway-Ninebot line was finally announced and it is called the S-Pod.


The S-Pod fulfills an old promise of even less physical exertion than its predecessors — it has a seat.

Like the models that came before it, the S-Pod self-balances on two wheels. However, Segway has added a third wheel for the vehicle to rest on while it is stopped.

Further changes include a navigation panel and control knob in lieu of the previous leaning backwards and forwards to control the machine. It also claims speeds of up to 25 miles per hour with a range of nearly 44 miles (contingent on terrain, the rider, and other factors).

Despite it accommodating seated passengers, the S-Pod does not seem to be suitable for riders requiring a wheelchair.

For some, a seated Segway sounds exactly like what they have been dreaming of.

However, others feel like the S-Pod looks eerily familiar.

Many people agree.


"Wall-E is very underrated for how much of a masterpiece that it really is." - DTVoid (Reddit)

Mostly people are not thrilled with society's trajectory.




"When I first saw it I assumed they were making a new wheelchair, but according to one article I read it's not going to be marketed to those who need wheelchairs." - Paper_Cut_On_My_Eye (Reddit)
"I like how when the balance mechanism malfunctions it has the option of either slamming the back of your head into the ground, or going for the full face plant." - MachReverb (Reddit)

At this time, the S-Pod is still just in its conceptual stage but it Segway-Ninebot has promised that it will make an appearance at CES 2020 which takes place next week in Las Vegas.

Feel-good dramas and hysterical comedies can leave an indelible impression on audiences and make them want to come back for multiple viewings.

The films with inspiring storylines, brilliant cinematography, or Oscar-worthy performances are the most memorable.

But there are films that have the opposite effect on moviegoers, making them wish they never saw them in the first place, despite critical acclaim in their respective genres.

There's nothing more unsettling than waking up in the middle of the night.

Particularly if what woke you up was a loud, unsettling creepy sound.

The only thing that could make the experience more nightmarish is opening your eyes and seeing something that makes you jump out of bed.

Most of the time, what ends up scaring the living daylights out of us is nothing more than a pile of laundry we forgot to put away or a cat's shadow, and find ourselves laughing about it weeks or even days later

Others however, haven't been so lucky, waking up to discover they were actually in legitimate danger.

Bullying seems to be a concept that has always been around. It comes in all forms, and in varying degrees.

Sometimes, the bullying can be mild and temporary. That doesn't make it okay, but it does make the bullying easier to deal with.

Other times, the bullying is harsh, and can even go too far. Sometimes, that can mean relentless teasing. Othertimes, it can mean that a bully took their torment to a new level, even proceeding into physical violence.

Whatever the case, when bullying goes too far, it sticks with you. Sometimes, you get revenge. Other times, you just deal with it until you can find a solution. Whichever method you choose, you will never forget it.
