    Ipod recently came out with a mobile dock which moves with the music.. that is quite basic but none the less, a Robotic entertainment center.

    Autonomous Segways.. I think before segway came in the market.. there were a bunch of autonomous robots that were based on the inverted pendulum.. check on youtube. Segway was a resultant of one such robot.

    But your ideas are always welcome.. dont ask..dont worry.. no one makes fun of an idea.. we just criticize thats all

    Transporting stuff also means transporting stuff CareFully and Safely.

    I don't see the need for a complicated balancing Segway, not to forget the high cost of making it, being very practical in life except as an experimental foray into Robotics.
    A 4 wheel mobile platform can do the same thing for a fraction of the cost, effort and time....besides being Safe with the materials it carries.

    All the same, its real fun, that thing!!!
