Build a two wheeled vehicle with active balancing, similar to the segway, but without it's steering column.

Build into the platform a force sensing device, similar to the Wii Fit.

Accellerate when the driver leans forwards, slow when he leans backwards, turn when he leans left/right.

The force sensors in the platform detect which way the driver is leaning, eliminating the need for additional steering hardware.

       I though the Segway column was for the person's balance stability and not for steering. Once a person is Segway capable the column isn't really needed, riding a bit like a surfer.
