I drove Segway’s bizarre egg-shaped scooter, and it was extremely difficult to use

Segway's personal “transporting pod” was shown off this week at CES 2020 for the first time since the company debuted the egg-shaped scooter as its newest product.

The S-Pod is essentially an electric wheelchair. It can hit speeds of up to 24 mph, and comes with a navigation pad to manually point the vehicle in the direction you want to go.

Although the vehicle is not available to the public, the S-Pod was unveiled this week at CES 2020, the year's biggest consumer tech show taking place in Las Vegas. I was able to test drive the S-Pod around a small track, where I was got a sense of how the vehicle's steering and acceleration works.

Here's my experience testing at the Segway-Ninebot S-Pod, which is not yet up for sale to consumers:
