What kind of a witchcraft is the Segway hoverboard?
Segway hoverboard - the story and the drama
The story about Segway and Ninebot can be an actual movie plot. The two-wheeled self-balancing scooter was invented in the USA but the inventors had some challenges regarding making the new form of electric transportation profitable.
Meanwhile, in China, a company called Ninebot, produced a similar product but since Segway already owned the worldwide patent for the self-balancing scooter, this was not well received in America. Segway filed a lawsuit against Ninebot. But how did Ninebot handle this? They bought Segway and merged the two companies. So that is the reason why our self-balancing scooter is called both Ninebot and Segway.
