From Xinhua via our friends at China Car Times comes the above photo, showing Chinese counter-terrorism forces going through drills as they prepare to crush any dissent terror threat that might arise during next month's Olympic Games. The black ninja suits, fritz helmets, body armor, and submachine pistols all fit the profile of a specialized group like this. But... Segways?

UPDATE: Turns out, Engadget is having a caption contest. (Thanks, seoultrain.)

      Dude, it's cool. They all form into one giant robot.

      im literally laughing out loud

      Laugh all you want, but I bet there's something to having a stable shooting platform while you move at speed. You can't exactly mow down protesters while you're running.

      This makes me want to be a terrorist. What could be more fun than mowing down endless waves of completely expendable Segway-mounted infantry?

      counterfeit Segways for sure...

      That's nothing - you should see their Navy SEALs on their inflatable duckies

      How long do you think they laughed at themselves before saying "OK, seriously, lets practice some maneuvers."?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Are they knock off Segways or ligit?

      Does that guy in the back (second or third from the right) have a crossbow?

      Dispatch, we lost the suspect. He, ah, went down a couple of stairs.

      I can't decide which is more strange:

      Creating a training program to use Segways for counter-terrorism

      or

      Telling Segway you need to buy fifty of their units for use in a counter-terrorism squad.
