Information to build a Segway Balancing Scooter
Self-balancing scooters, like the Segway are often thought to be technological miracles, but it is not actually very hard to build one. I built one in about a week using off-the-shelf parts. I spent another week tweaking the high-speed stability, improving the steering control.
Although the Segway has several exotic components, mine is built from common low-tech parts like wheelchair motors and RC car batteries. The parts, even at small quantity retail prices, cost a lot less than a genuine Segway. It also doesn't need complex or high-performance software. Riding the scooter is definitely fun. Things I like about it are:
* It's easy, when riding down the street, to stop and chat. Somehow on a bicycle or a regular scooter, it's a huge nuisance to stop. But on this scooter, it seems very natural to pull up and chat while standing on it.
* It's pretty easy to drive around inside the office. The low-speed maneuverability makes it easy to go through doors
