86: Segway Evolution

Self-balancing vehicles started with the Segway in 2001, but since then they've evolved, losing their handle bars and even losing a wheel. We look at how they've evolved over time, how safe they are and how potentially crazy John is, since he's started riding one. With John Chidgey & Vic Hudson.
