Legway Steampunk Segway - Click above for a gallery

Sure, the Segway Personal Transporter is cool and all, with its self-balancing technology and lack of emissions from the vehicle, but is there a way to make it greener? At least one enterprising inventor thinks so, and by subtracting the electric motors, computers, batteries and all of the associated techno-bits, he seems to have succeeded. The invention is called the Legway.

This isn't expected to be a real form of transportation, but it's undeniably cool. Bicycles have long been considered the most efficient way to get around, sometimes even more so than walking. So, combining the side-by-side wheel arrangement of the Segway with the pedal-for-yourself nature of a bicycle strikes us as a winning idea. Best of all, you are free to make one for yourself.
