NEWS – So let’s say that you have an extra Segway MiniPRO laying around that you aren’t using.  Yeah, no, I can’t really relate to this either, but work with me here and pretend.  You have an extra Segway MiniPRO laying around, and you wish there was something really fun you could do with it.  There is!  You can buy the Segway Ninebot Gokart Kit and convert your Segway into a gokart!  It’s a fully functional gokart with steering wheel, accelerator, brakes, and everything.  Top speed is 15 mph!  The MiniPRO supplies the back wheels and the battery, while the kit supplies everything else.  It’s a nifty transformation.  The Amazon page calls the resulting product a “drift racer,” but if you ever had a Big Wheel growing up with a hand brake, you know that you’re just getting a little spin out at the end rather than actually doing any drifting.  Still, it looks like a lot of fun, and the kit is only $800 on Amazon.
