At the CES 2020 expo Segway, the company knows for its two-wheeled self-balancing scooters has unveiled the S-Pod which is more like a wheelchair and a rather comfortable one which is designed to be used in airports, theme parks, campuses and maybe even museums. The S-Pod which is inspired by the gyrosphere from Jurassic World has a joystick controller for navigation. The chair uses Segway’s self-balancing technology to maintain the level of the pod and also change the direction when needed. The pod also automatically stops when it detects aa change in the center of gravity thus preventing it from tipping over.
