Mantys is part motorized scooter, part golf cart, and a pinch of Segway

Oh I like this very much. Very much indeed. The Mantys (or “MANTYS” as the company shouts) is a personal motorized golf cart that’s steered simply by shifting your weight. It weighs just 45 pounds, has a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour, and can go for 36 holes before needing to be recharged. At the end of the day, the Mantys folds down for easy transport.

Rob Hayashida over at Golf Views got some video of the Mantys in action at this year’s 2010 PGA Merchandise show. It’ll apparently be available for purchase sometime in the spring of this year for around $3,250. I’d think that certain courses would rent these things, too.

Very cool. I’m not sure I’d be able to swing the $3,250 to buy one outright but I definitely wouldn’t think twice about renting one.
