Toshiba creates Segway clone
Toshiba has created a personal commuter vehicle similar to the Segway. The scooter will be powered by a fuel cell and the LED lights on the front are for communicating with other Toshiba transporters to prevent collisions and to auto-navigate. Current Segways are illegal to use in Japan on public property so the anti-collision and auto-navigation features are needed to help this thing get approved for public use.
Although if you're interested in something like this you could save yourself a lot of trouble by just buying some stickers that say "Dork" on them and sticking them to your back.
