I like it, really captures the spirit of chindōgu.

Not sure what the cable hanging off it is doing though. Only half an hour spent on it? You should so spend the extra time putting a plug on the end. How useless would that be? A TV hat that has to be plugged in.

Heh, fair enough.

Here's my entry. It comes with a sales pitch.

Ever wanted a Segway but don't want to miss out on exercise? Ever wanted to go to the gym but don't want to miss out on going somewhere else? Ever wanted a bike that can't turn corners?

If you answered yes to none or more of the questions above, then the pedal-powered segway is for you. Still not conviced? Don't worry, our marketing department has come up with a branding strategy that's sure to be a hit with suave businessmen and drug-dealers everywhere.
