    ​I Can't Wrap My Brain Around This 2-Wheel-Drive, Dual-Steering Freak

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    You can create some amazing machines if you disregard that pesky power to weight ratio.

    It obviously uses hardware and software similar to a Segway. That would allow balancing upright and leaning to make it go sideways.

    Then twisting the throttle would make the balls roll forward, and turning the handlebars would tweak the power feed to the balls to turn.

    Figuring out some of the maneuvers that thing could do is hurting my head!

    I want the hydraulic one with an off road sidecar and three wheel drive. I believe Volvo made a one off prototype of that some years ago and it worked very well, They never offered it for sale.
