Somewhere out there, there’s a group of mall security guards shedding a collective tear.
Yesterday, the company that makes the Segway PT, Ninebot, announced that they’ll be stopping production in the middle of next month. They had been in production since 2001.
However, with a price tag ranging between $5,000 and $10,000, only 140,000 were ever sold.
Ninebot will still make smaller self-balancing scooters that are cheaper and easier to ride. But the original Segway that we know and love won’t be manufactured after July 15th.
