Hey, you want to stand apart from the crowd in your choice of two-wheeled transport? Try the GM/Segway PUMA -->

Transportation for the mindless masses! Sweet. Does this mean they can get rid of those big empty buses here in Austin??

Looks like a wheel chair on steroids.
What is the point of balancing on two wheels? Put two fron caster like in a ride on lawn mower and forguet about feeding a gyroscope. I see the point on the original Segway but not on this. Get a Vespa.

Yeah, I think I'll take a bike instead. either the pedal or powered variety.

The vehicles would automatically avoid obstacles such as pedestrians and other cars and therefore never crash, Burns said.

Probably they said the same when they put brakes on the horseless carriages

"At this point, it's merely a business decision," he said. :yawn: Oh yeah, keep up the good work GM execs. here is your bonus

That's "Therapists," not "The Rapists." Let's skip "Therapists" and try "Household Objects", for $400.

Oh, and that vehicle is stupid and just another example of how out of touch GM is with the public. Good job on the Chevy SS too GM. You suck.

GM just doesn't get it anymore. While they think they can convince folks with these types press releases, teenagers and 20 somethings are still buying Hondas and the like. GM was on track with the Cobalt but never developed the needed interest and Chrysler never brought out the next Neon so the first generation of new buyers have gone to other marks.

Can I buy a clue
