As I wrote in my note for yesterdays's upload, people use all sorts of means of transportation in the garden of the Gods. These three were riding Segway PTs.
Information from Wikipedia on this strange transport: The Segway PT is a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle invented by Dean Kamen. It is produced by Segway Inc. of New Hampshire, USA. The name Segway is a homophone of the word segue, meaning smooth transition. PT is an abbreviation for personal transporter.
Computers and motors in the base of the device keep the Segway PT upright when powered on with balancing enabled. The user commands the Segway to go forward by shifting their weight forward on the platform, and backward by shifting their weight backward. The Segway detects, as it balances, the change in its center of mass, and first establishes and then maintains a corresponding speed, forward or backward. Gyroscopic sensors and fluid-based leveling sensors detect the weight shift. To turn, the user presses the handlebar to the left or the right.
Segway PTs are driven by electric motors and can reach a speed of 12.5 miles per hour (20.1 km/h).
Arka Arkaya Ördekler
Dünün yüklenmesinin notumda yazdığım gibi, insanlar Tanrıların Bahçesi’nde her türlü ulaşım aracını kullanırlar. Bu üçlü Segway PT sürüyordu.
Bu garip ulaşım hakkında Wikipedia’dan bilgiler: Segway PT Dean Kamen tarafından icat edilmiş iki tekerlekli, kendini dengeleyen, batarya güçlü elektrikli bir araçtır. New Hampshire, ABD’de Segway Inc tarafından üretilmektedir. Segway adı yumuşak bir geçiş anlamındaki kelime segue’ye hemsestir. PT “personal tranporter“ (kişisel taşıyıcı) için bir kısaltmadır.
Etkin dengeleme ile açıldığında cihazın tabanındaki bilgisayarlar ve motorlar Segway PT’yi dik tutar. Kullanıcı Segway’e öne gitmesini platformda kendi ağırlığını öne kaydırarak ve geriye gitmesini de ağırlığını geriye kaydırarak komut verir. Segway, dengelerken kütle merkezi değişikliğini algılar, ve ileri veya geri hızını önce ayarlar ve sonra tutar. Jiroskopik sensörler ve sıvı bazlı tesviye sensörler ağırlık değişikliğini algılar. Dönmek için, kullanıcı, gidonu sola veya sağa bastırır.
Segway PT elektrik motorları tarafından sürülür ve saat başına 12.5 millik (20.1 km/saat) bir hıza ulaşabilir.

When the thumbprint first came up I thought these people are going uphill by some strange means, without moving a muscle!.So thankyou for your informative note.

I like your Pov, and especially Dof, on to the gorgeous mountains.
Well managed, Tfs,

Very strange mode of transport never heard of it before. So thanks for sharing this. The Segway riders are perfectly placed in the frame. I like the gradation of the mountains in the BG as well. Nice shot with natural colours and light. Thanks for sharing.

Well placed those Segway riders on the road and in relation to the surrounding, added much life to the landscape on photo.
Segway is a sport foor really lazy people, unlike electric-bikes which the rider still has to maintain a balance and some driving skills.
My humble opinion on the matter.

Great title for this shot...that about sums it up just right! :) They look oddly out of place on these things, seemingly out in the middle of nowhere...I thought they were only used at the mall?? lol
A fun way to see the park I'm sure, and you've done a nice job in bringing that idea to life. A lovely open space and pure natural beauty all around, this would surely be a pleasant way to get around without getting worn out. Super depth, love seeing those layers fading into the distance. Have a good one. Take care.

You're capturing well this landscape and interesting vehicle by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see mountain range with some layers, the surrounding nature with rich greenery and this environment-friendly Segway PTs. It looks like the healthy vehicle with minimum mechanism and function. Human's wisdom does not stop.

Very well done, TFS.
