Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Looks like the Segway fad has run its course. How else to explain why the Segway Enthusiasts Group of America has up and died from lack of participation?

The fine print is that SEG America is undergoing a “significant transformation”, with Segway itself lending aid. Translation: The club is turning over all organizational assets to the scooter company, and the company will turn that over to its marketing department, and that’s the end of that.

For what it’s worth, I’ve had exactly one single Segway sighting in New York in the year-and-a-half I’ve been here. I’d think more would be puttering around the concrete jungle, especially given the local demand for alternate forms of transportation.

So I’m not too surprised by the slow death represented here. Segway’s well on its way to becoming a quaint historical cul-de-sac in personal transportation development.
