If you’ve ever used a segway, you know that it can be dangerous. It takes quite some time to get comfortable with the sudden jerks in movement and balance.

It also looks really awkward.

Now there’s an alternative to the segway, called Whill. The Japan-based technology takes a more practical approach to personal mobility by allowing the user to sit down.

The personal mobility device also comes with software integration. Using the app that comes with the device, you can control it like a remote-controlled car.
