Ulrich Kahlert's add-on/modification for the Segway enables handsfree operation of the ubergeek scooter. Which actually might make it kind of cool, without the intrusive handlebars standing in front of you, it's more like having robotic rollerblades strapped to your feet. He also makes a camera mount for cameramen.

Implications - Segway personal transportation vehicles have revolutionized the way people navigate on foot; they're virtually omnipresent in malls and have inspired a tech-savvy twist on walking tours in many major cities. By adapting this pressure-sensitive vehicle to make other jobs easier, such as filming video, product designers can build upon the success of the Segway and take advantage of its expanding consumer base.
