    The Segway seems like a great idea but after thinking I wondered how a person could use it if they have one or two children to accompany them. Is their some kind of baby seat? Realistically it would need one to take children up to 5 years old. Perhaps there is an adapter? Ideally it could carry up to 4 children. For children over 5 years old Dean should consider a miniature version with control over rides by the “mother ” Segway, or perhaps the answer is just a simple trailer?

    Has this ever been addressed by Dean?
