12.3.2001: Segway Human Transporter
For all those people who were wondering what "IT" or "Ginger"
was, the world has finally found out. It’s the Segway
Human Transporter
. It’s a self balancing, motorized scooter that
you’re supposed to be able to navigate around crowded cities with. Take
a look at their web site: it’s got pictures of really deluded people
talking to each other and and running around what looks like some picturesque
quasi-Bern city talking to each other on their HTs. Yah, it’s slightly
disappointing, but they’ve got a really impressive client list, such
as the USPS, who are testing to see if it could be used for mail delivery.
