We've always thought the biggest problem with Segways, design wise, was their clinical sterility. Still, it's such blankness that makes them eminently pimpable, on the scale of, say, lowrider bikes (though, slamming one's face into the ground after throwing the Segway's gyroscopes out of wack might be one concern to address). MTX Audio seems to have made the first attempt by slapping spinner hubs on a Segway, which the company showed at the CES electronics show last month. There's way more that could be done — the possibilities of for purple velvet alone could fill a sketchbook.
