Its got handles on its shoulders, stirrups on its hips and a seat sticking out of its ass. The controls are in the handles and work the same as the Segway. You're never too old to enjoy a piggyback ride, and unlike your dad, the Piggyback-Bot never has a backache and is willing to take you all the way down to the corner store for ice cream.

       I'm nominating Piggyback-Bot street racing scenes for most important futuristic detail that didn't make it into "I, Robot".
