    Nooooo – the gyros are physical, not electronic. The Segway uses a gyro on a chip to direct the wheels to jitter themselves to keep the Segway upright. The C-1 uses actual massive spinning cylinders to maintain the attitude of the vehicle. It’s being held up by the angular momentum of the spinning gyros, not a computer on a chip twiddling the wheels.
