This thing will give the word ┬┤faceplant┬┤ a whole new meaning. Maybe Mr. Gulak should contact NASA on how they developed a system of airbags to protect marslanders from shattering upon landing. That might work when a faceplant at 60mph is imminent.

Very nice picture, thanks for sharing.
Yeah you know, when I\'m out in the of the beyond, the one thing I hate is the peace and quiet. How wonderful it will be when 10 or 20 or 100 of these things are ripping across the landscape and through the woods. I can\'t wait.

DAKOROMAN DIXIT: DTV Shredder and SEGWAY DO NOT HAVE A FUNCTION, it's absence can be noticed here - see Picture 5, or any of their video clips (it's all about INCREASED STABILITY and DEGREES OF FREEDOM). The lack of that function affects everything: design, functionability, construction materials, price, rider's safety, portability, etc. These type of machines can not be defined as "all terrain", just "some terrains". The good news: they can be improved with the help of DAKOROMAN SYSTEMS, if you email at
Everyone tries to show how practical their machines are. I guess that is our main excuse for making them. When the video shows the dummy being rescued - what do you do about the exhaust pipe pointing at his head?

I hope this doesn\'t take off. It will tear up the ground and scar the land much more than ATV\'s. It\'s also super dangerous. At least you get a somewhat soft landing with Jet Skis.
Aptly named \"Shredder\" environmental nightmare.
Doesn\'t seem to be capable of carving into turns, has limited suspension stroke, poor ergonomics forcing the rider to be constantly twisted. A skater or snowboarder only has to turn his head to look in direction of travel. An improvement would be to make it a mono-track with footholds either side maybe with a center castor to allow directional control with the handlebar, but that\'s so close to a snowmobile or dirtbike that its hardly worth bothering with.

More ways kids can kill themselves.
Ya, he is a mechanical genius and his stuff has cross-over value i.e., military, search and rescue and just plain fun. Keep going dude, and don\'t forget the GPS and maps bits. I know that l-ion batteries and electric motor are heavy but, I wonder if a little gearing trick could put all of the torque to good use (that or a torque converter).
