Dog Segways

a segway for each dog leg

Tiny segways for each leg of a dog. The system could be optimized so that the dog's natural running motion translated as closely as possible into that click-clacky undulation motion that propels skateboarders forward.

Actually that doesnt make any sense. It would be better to just have a segway platform that was just really responsive so that if the dog started leaning one way the segway would go that way. Wait a minute, thats the way a segway already is. Can dogs already ride segways?

Someone should just optimise the damn segway for dogs already.

Better than Segways I'd imagine [AusCan531, Dec 06 2012]

       I, on the other hand, believe that the first line of the second paragraph encapsulates the idea perfectly.

       In New Zealand dogs can already drive cars [link]. Segways would be a downgrade.
