Yesterday I was surprised by a visit from my colleague Vincent. The visit itself wasn’t the surprise, but Vincent’s new means of transportation was: the Segway.
This really is an amazing piece of technology. There is no gass handle whatsoever; when you lean forward, it re-establishes balance and rolls back underneath you, sort of. So to keep leaning forward means you’re riding. Leaning backward causes the Segway to brake or even to roll backwards.
I made a fun short capture of Vincent showing off his new gadget. Watch it (wmv).
You can also buy one in Holland by the way, or look for a better deal at eBay.
