In an attempt to prove the circular nature of trends, Segway is bringing back the rollerblades of yesteryears, with, of course, a modern make-over.

Built according to the self-balancing technology that Segway is famous for, the black and white Drift W1 is targeted towards the youth and claims to offer maximum comfort and safety by including materials that make it slip-resistant on foot mats.

The skates are expected to glide into the markets shortly, with Segway announcing a press conference for August 30, and one can expect the lines to be as long as the ones for the hoverboard.   

They’ve released a short clip of the product, which you can watch here:
