“Segway,” an electric-powered personal rider, appeared in downtown Seoul. It can move forward and backward and stop by operating its central body, not by brakes or an accelerator. Segway, which gained public favor in the U.S. and Europe, is operated by charging power through electricity and can go as fast as 20 km per hour and costs 8.47 million won. Lotte Department Store is displaying Segway for sale from April 5 to April 8 at the special shop of the main department store, Sogong-dong, Chung-gu, Seoul.
