Error: you can always take your feet into a building without anyone
raising a fuss. Let's see people use this in a typical hotel hallway,
or on a bus, or in the office, or just about *any* enclosed location
(and a certain few unenclosed ones) with more than a few other people
present without being promptly expelled. Even wheelchairs have this
beat hands-down there.

There are other problems. For instance, yur feet don't need recharging
separate from the rest of your body. But they're minor in comparison.

Now, if you want to specify "for outside transportation only", then your
feet are the least of the competitors. Automobiles and airliners most
definitely are competition, along with rollerskates, bicycles, and more.

Frankly, I fail to see what the excitement is about. So we have another
make of electric scooter on the market...
