Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Very cool, the range of movements is great, much more manuverable then the Segway was. I would still prefer to stand myself though, the ladies didn't seem to know what to do with their hands unless they were carrying a box. I guess that wouldn't be a problem in reality though since most are playing or texting with their cell phones while driving anyway. They are a bit loud right now but it's still a prototype design.

I want one too  Tongue

It won't be skinny people using the device.

Remember the luxury liners on WALL-E? Those people are your future clients for these units and their offspring devices.

Honestly the only time I really minded the crank on the window was when pulling up to or away from a toll booth in a heavy rain.... and even that would be fine if the overall world quotient for impatience wasn't so apparent in car horn usage statistics.  Roll Eyes

Being able to control the other 3 windows is nice, but nothing that warrants a lot of any sleepless night for penguins.

My Explorer has power nothing, I gotta' do it all manually except make it move, I wanted it that way. I will admit power locks are nice though with 5 doors to run around and lock.
