We Have an Old-Fashioned Segway Vs Hoverboard Drag Race

Which is faster? We recreate a scene from Grease to find out.

If you lie awake at night wondering what 2-wheeled gyroscopically stabilized vehicle is fastest, then join the club. Recently, the Geek Vs Geek crew at our sister site eHow decided to find out, and this is the result.

After a brief conversation in the studio, we head ouside and race in the parking lot, with our host Helen Hong in an old fashioned poodle skirt to set the mood.

We rode around for an hour or two to get comfortable on our respective vehicles, and then faced off on camera. And no, it's not staged; we honestly didn't know who would win.
