Great technological innovation!  Revolutionary mode of transportation!  Thrill of an adventurist's lifetime!  Great Christmas gift for the kids!  Big hit with hospital E.R personnel!

12.5 mph top speed is not what I would call "freedom of movement, of travel."  The overhype of that video is cringe-worthy.

 

And the way its creator seems elated that he can keep his balance in it while moving only a few feet at less than walking pace is underwhelming.

Second thoughts about this technology...If you can get it to go a bit faster (say, 20 mph) and higher (say, up to 3 feet), with an extended-life and quick rechargable battery.  And, instead of standing on it, either sitting with seat belt or lying face down, with reliable maneuverability, a fun recreational vehicle.
