Regular readers will know of my interest in Dean Kamen’s Segway Human Transporter. I want one. :-) The price is relatively high, but personally, I rate it as one of the great inventions of the last 100 years. I recently came across a website run by Philip Torrone, who bought an HT about two months ago. He writes about his daily commute, all the ramifications of losing his car and how he interacts with the people around him when using it. It’s a well put-together site, a mine of useful links and information and an excellent read. It adds fuel to my desire to own one. Click Here. Read his “100 Miles on a Segway HT” article.
Coming to the UK on 1 July, is the Book “Codename Ginger” the behind-the-scenes story of the creation of this new marvel. Paperback – 368 pages Doubleday; ISBN: 0385605226. Watch out for it.
