    This news today certainly comes as a surprise....but points out how technology can actually be dangerous when used incorrectly.

    It made me wonder what the heck this fellow was thinking when using this technology in that particular location... :eek2:

    In this case, it's not the Tech that's dangerous. Rather, it's the misuse of Tech. I wouldn't ride anything dangerously close to a cliff edge. It's just courting disaster. (I'm even reluctant to approach a cliff edge - my acrophobia won't permit it!)

    It would seem that we don't know all the facts yet - a malfunction could have come into play...

    This isn't a runaway Toyota. You can jump off a Segway, unless the malfunction was in the rider, like a ministroke or heart attack or too much alcohol or overconfidence.
