Toyota just launched what could be a Segway look-alike. The Toyota Winglet is a the lighter and hopefully a much-less expensive version of the ever-popular Segway — and they come in 3 sizes too.

All 3 models — S, M, — have a maximum cruising speed of 6kmph, fully charges in an hour and has a range of 5km for the S model and 10km for the M & L models.

Control of the Winglet is done by leaning in the direction you want to move. Possible pricing hasn’t been indicated though.

Toyota may start using these babies at the Japan Aiport sometime next year but mass production will not start until 2010.
