Do they share the same dubious legal status as Segway's here?

I had to google it, I'd not heard of them.

Now I too, am outraged.

I have no bloody clue.

Some plum in a suit just whistled past down the road, not a care in the world.

Googling it, there's no dubious legality about the Segway, people have taken it as far as the High Court and lost. I suspect that there will be clarification on the legality of the Airwheel in a similar fashion, I expect the user to lose.

What are you referring to? Are they illegal on roads or summat?

A board consensus this strong hasn't formed since Marmong returned.

I saw a guy crossing the road with a helmet on, wasn't sure why an old guy in a suit was wearing a helmet. He clambered onto one of these machines when he got across the intersection, but promptly fell off, so all was good in the world.
