Segway Death Brigade in China

...that's the image I get when I see this picture anyway:

This is actually China's new anti-terrorist solution: Segways! Since the devices allow the occupants (once trained in balance and knee steering) to keep their hands free while driving, they maybe be a good alternative to other types of transportation. Engadget points out that accidentally flipping into reverse might be a bit of a problem, but it sure does make for an impressive entrance.

There is a guy on Mason's campus that drives around one of these things and I have to say...while they can move pretty fast, they'd probably only be evenly matched if the terrorists were in an electric go-cart. Maybe these have been tuned up?
