Segway-miniPRO

Happy Amazon Prime Day!  If you have been looking for a “safer” version of the oh so popular “hover boards” then you’ll love the Segway miniPRO at this steep discounted price of $699 from $999.  Basically, it’s a few hundred more than the ones that catch on fire.

This little personal transporter connects to a mobile app via Bluetooth and allows remote control operation, anti-theft alarm, speed control, customizable lights, vehicle diagnostics, and firmware updates!  It’s also UL Certified so it meets the fire and electrical safety set by world-renown global safety science company Underwriters Laboratories.  It can also carry up to 220 lbs and it’s dual motor engine delivers 1600 watts of power to safely reach top speeds of 10 MPH and distances of 14 miles on a full charge.

The best part, as announced at CES by Intel — it can be turned into an autonomous Robot!

It’s been a while since I last uploaded a video to YouTube. In this video I give an update on my YouTube channel, a neat Fusion 360 tip (attaching canvas and using the calibrate feature), show an extremely basic process of designing something in Fusion 360, sending it to Simplify3D slicer then printing on the 3D Printer.  I will be posting more videos on YouTube so please subscribe to my channel as it definitely puts wind in my sails and influences the type of content I create.
