GM, Segway to Make Vehicle

After seeing the segway fail to fully make its transition into everyday life, are really we gonna see this new machine zipping up and down the street? Seems that this on the road is just a tad bit more dangerous than the segway.

The Project P.U.M.A. (Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility) prototype is shown in Brooklyn April 4. GM and Segway say the vehicle could allow people to travel around cities more quickly, safely, quietly and cleanly, and at a lower total cost.

General Motors Corp. is teaming with Segway Inc., maker of the upright, self-balancing scooters, to build a new type of two-wheeled vehicle designed to move easily through congested urban streets.

The machine, which GM says it aims to develop by 2012, would run on batteries and use wireless technology to avoid traffic backups and navigate cities.

The struggling auto maker, surviving on a government lifeline, is looking to generate enthusiasm for its increasingly uncertain future ahead of the New York auto show this week.

GM has slashed product-development programs, advertising and spending on auto-show events. But it will take to the streets of Manhattan on Tuesday to show off a prototype of the vehicle, called PUMA, for Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility.

PUMA Teddy First Round

via Sneaker Freaker

If it’s good enough for Nike, then it’s worth a shot for Puma! Taking their friendly First Round model and slenderizing it down to a chick’s size, Puma have turned the cuteness dial straight to Number 11 with a bullet. Offered in egg yolk/red, or a blue on blue combo, the shoe has faux fur, overstitched threads and a wee little belly button. The pack also takes some inspiration from the Bode Clyde with an embossed star treatment in the heel. This First Round gives the bogan-chic coolness of the ugg boot an update – now you too can have your teddy and wear it.
