It’s every technology-obsessed person’s dream to ride a segway, which is a two-wheeled machine that has a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour. Surprisingly enough, there is actually a “sport” that uses segways, which cost around $5,000.

Segway Polo has grown popular over the years, featuring teams like the Silicon Valley Aftershocks, who are home to famous people such as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and “Friday the 13th” screenwriter Victor Miller.

Steve Wozniak

In Segway polo there are four eight-minute quarters. The championship is named the “Woz Challenge Cup,” after Wozniak.

You may have inferred from the fact that players ride on segways that one does not have to be very athletic to play Segway polo. Miller is 69 years old, Wozniak is 59, and the captain of arguably the best Segway polo team, Peter Gilkes, is 61, if you’re looking for an average age range.
