What parent in their right mind would condone / encourage his [any] kids to do that, let alone without a helmet.

P.S. How are you enjoying your i2?

That put a smile on my face! Did you see the stick shake at the end? Looks like the video fades out just before the kid is knocked backwards and the camera man gets a "close up" of the i180!

Who says you get no exercise on a Segway!

I used to think the world was like an Ayn Rand novel, now I see that it's much more like The Sumpsons.

Default IQ

and you ask why Segway requires every user to get "Trained', (this guy skipped the trainng)? Maybe also a IQ test should be required.

As much as I would have enjoyed watching an adult break something (arm, leg, segway, etc) doing this, it was rather sad to see that the same adult would let their kid try it. Certainly not parent of the year material.

I don't know what's a more stupid act....

- Trampoline Segway with your kid

- Posting the video tape of such terrible parenting on YouTube!

And what made anybody think of Trampoline Segway? I've thought of a lot of stupid stunts I might try on a Segway (including going down a flight of stairs) but trampoline Segway was never one of them.

Karl,

I'm suprised nobody has tried to jump out of a plane with a Segway yet. Do you think the landing could allow them to ride off into the sunset?

"Go Out And Play In Traffic"

Now Parents must be saying "Take the Gen One Segway and get on the Trampoline"

What is this world coming to?

Now I know why I don't have kids....

I don't have room for a Trampoline! ;-)

... if that video showed that child fall and get hurt, it would likely be portrayed as the Segway's fault!
