Hoverboards stole the throne for personal transportation a while back and Segway has been trying to reclaim it ever since. The company has just revealed their e-Skates which are essentially two small self-balancing hoverboards and the products is set to be released later this year.
15 years have passed since the classic Segway has hailed as the future of personal mobility. Even though it did not pan out like that, the product has been kept alive. Since the arrival of hoverboards in 2015, the company has been forced to redesign its older products for the newer generation.
Even though none of those products had that wow factor, the company is not giving up and is continuing its efforts to find that next magical product that captures the imagination of the public. The newest product Drift W1 are small, lightweight e-Skates that sound cool but are not that easy to handle.

The price for these skates have not yet been revealed but they are expected to be somewhere between $400-500. Segway says that the Drift W1 are the “first product in its brand-new e-Skates category,” so it is highly likely that similar products will be made in the future as well.
