Own a Segway? You’re about to own something else,too. That “something else”is better known as the USB-enabled Seg-Link kit,a downright mysterious new product that has shown itself today tromping through the FCC’s database. Details are exceedingly light,and even the user manual doesn’t do a stellar job of explaining the device’s true purpose;best we can tell,it’ll enable Segway owners to connect their two-wheeled transporters to a PC. Beyond that,we’re left to imagine a world of Dinan-like horsepower flashes,tinkering with compression calculations,adjusting gear ratios and implementing other tactics learned in one of the fourteen Fast &Furious films. We’re guessing it’ll be on sale in the US of A within a few months —till then,feel free to drop your hypotheses on what it’ll bring in comments below.
