Segway miniPRO for the Whole Family

By Telegram & Gazette

A guy we know gave a Segway miniPRO to everyone in his family. This is a smaller, much cheaper, version of the adult scooters, that Silicon Valley hotshots touted a few years ago as “the next great thing.” (Was it even the next good thing?) We saw the new Minis on Amazon and elsewhere for $600. The scooter goes 14 miles on a single charge, and charging takes about four hours. It weighs 28 pounds.

Like the Segway, the miniPRO is a two-wheel platform that you stand on and control by way of a stick between your knees. It won’t let you go faster than four miles per hour until you’ve mastered a few tutorials, using a free smartphone ap. Then it can go up to 10 mph. One 63-year-old guy says that he and his wife ride theirs to the grocery store.

Segway MiniPro Drops Its Price to $600 for the Holidays

By Mobile Mag

For those who are planning to get something similar to the hoverboard or electric skateboard but are afraid to do so because of exploding and fire-catching versions made in China, you were probably intrigued by the new Segway MiniPro. However, many were probably thrown off by its original pricey cost. But, listen up: this same Segway MiniPro – the lighter, shorter, slower, and way less expensive version of the go-the-way-you-lean personal transporter – has set up distribution in North America and dropped its price for the 2016 holiday season to $600. North American distribution of the Segway MiniPro is exclusively through Amazon. Be aware that the Segway MiniPro is not the same machine as the Xiaomi Mini that started selling in November 2015 in China. The North American version is similar, however, but not identical, to the Ninebot MiniPro sold in France.

Harry Connick Jr.’s Favorite Gadgets

By Chris Kornelis @ Wall Street Journal

I zip around my show’s office a lot on a Segway miniPRO. When you need to get someplace fast, it’s pretty fun to jump on that. I probably would be better off wearing some kind of wrist guard or a helmet, but it doesn’t go that fast. I haven’t had any accidents so far.

OK, so if you are one of the many who was intrigued by the original Segway but lost interest when you saw the price, listen up.

Segway MiniPRO is One Of Amazon’s Hottest Post-Cyber Monday Deals

By Brian KrassensteinIR.net

For instance, Amazon.com is having their ‘Cyber Monday’ sale all week long, and one of the best deals, out of the thousands they are still offering up, is a $200 discount on the Segway miniPRO Smart Self Balancing Personal Transporter. Normally this advanced, high-tech scooter would be priced at $799, however, Amazon is offering it up for just $599, a 25% discount, with free shipping.

The scooter itself has been the recipient of an overwhelming number of positive reviews. In fact, 80% of all reviews are either 4 or 5 stars, with the average review being 4.3 stars. This seems like a great buy if you were one of the people last holiday season, who may have been burned (perhaps quite literally) by the influx of Chinese-made hoverboards, which ended up being recalled, as they were fire hazards.

Segway MiniPro: Smart Self Balancing Personal Transporter

By Miu von Furstenberg @ SOCIALITE LIFE

The age of the “hoverboard” is over. The Segway miniPRO is the next evolutionary step of two-wheeled, self-balancing personal transporters.

Segway and Ninebot utilized decades of combined industry knowledge to create smarter software, stronger hardware, and safer features. The miniPRO’s precision sensors automatically react to the rider’s movements and maintain stability over a variety of indoor and outdoor terrains. The knee control bar provides innovative steering precision that allows you to maneuver more effectively than two-wheel hover boards.

Segway MiniPro: The Alternative to Walking is a Lot of Fun

By Danny Zepeda TechnoBuffalo

If you were ever into hover boards, this is probably something you’ll be interested in. You might know Segway, the makers of those funky scooters security guards and tourists use, but they have also create other products. The Segway miniPro is an iteration of the scooters you’ve seen, but without the handle. It’s a fancier version of a hover board, and it won’t blow up. It features a premium built, complete with a display that lets you know the battery status and lights that illuminate your way.

The Segway miniPro gets up to 10 miles per hour and has a range of 14 miles. That’s nice and all, but the main features with this glorified hover board is its rich interface. You can download the Segway app and control the miniPro right from your phone. It also has a balancing program that makes it easier to ride that regular hover boards. This means you probably won’t be a YouTube reel of people comically experiencing pain.

Booting Up: Get Ready to Roll

By Jessica Van Sack Boston Herald

The URB-E was specifically appealing to me because it is made and manufactured in the United States, which sets it apart. Segway just launched the Ninebot by Segway miniPRO, a hands-free, self-balancing personal transport scooter with a reasonable price, at $800. Last year Segway was purchased by a Chinese rival, Beijing-based Ninebot. Something to keep in mind.

By Joshua J. Cohen @ Tubefilter

The fraternal YouTube pair of Andrew and Seth McMurry have been producing very-high-quality, special-effects-laden, action-oriented shorts since way back in 2011 under the banner of AndrewMFilms and more recently the much-cooler sounding (no offense, Andrew) Nukazooka (the origin of which is from the combination of a soft drink in the video game Fallout and the word “bazooka”). Seth’s area of expertise is production, while Andrew is the special effects guru. And together they’ve created some of what must be the most fun-to-watch, coolest-looking, live-action shorts on YouTube.

Donald and Hillary Have Been Spending the Most Money on These Ads

By Jason Lynch @ Adweek

As the presidential race enters its final week, Hillary Clinton has been dominating the national ad spend, but Donald Trump is making up for lost time with a late, pricey surge, topping $1 million a day.

According to data from iSpot.tv, which tracked national campaign spending from Oct. 18 to Oct. 30, Clinton outspent Trump nationally by $2.1 million, and her national spots aired almost two and a half times as often as Trump’s did. In that two week period, Trump spent $7.8 million on national TV advertising, running 10 ads a total of 926 times. Clinton spent $9.9 million during that span, running 12 ads a total of 2,397 times.
