Segway i2 Personal Transporter
Dean Kamen invented an upright electric scooter type of machine that let the rider stand upright. They were first sold in 2002 and some call it the PT or personal transporter. Other names for it are the Ginger and IT.
The Segway is easy to ride and control. Lean forward and you go ahead and of course leaning back backs you up.
To stop the rider just stands upright and a small push to the left or right on the handlebars turns the machine.
The iBot, is a wheel chair that would let the rider climb stairs and raise the person up to eye level while balancing on only two wheels. This same technique was used to make the Segway, which runs people around in the upright position.
At first the Segway was only used on level surfaces like sidewalks but now some are made for rough terrain. These are made to go over rocks and can be used off road. The police have used these scooters to patrol the Olympics. This enables then to move fast thorough crowds and not get tired.
Once charge can enable these scooters to travel 24 miles, which is really good. As technology continues to advance so does the Segway. The later ones can take water and other conditions that the earlier ones could not handle.
A Tall Tale:
Not to far from me was a fast food place and a couple of young women stopped their Segway type scooters and hopped off to make a order of some ice cream.
I was just casually watching when a fast motion caught my attention. A teenager saw his opportunity and jumped on one of the scooters and took off. One of the women noticed and gave a loud yell for the boy to stop. He didn't hesitate but quickly zoomed away.
My husband was also with me but he had wandered off down the boardwalk with the plan of joining me later. Since the boy was heading in his direction I quickly called him and filled him in and told him to watch. He happened to be standing near a police officer and told him about it. I gave the officer a description of the boy and he handed the phone back to my husband.
It wasn't more then a couple of minutes when I heard a commotion. My husband relayed the drama. The police officer saw the boy and grabbed him as he came by. He was quickly put into custody and I relayed the good news to the distraught women who had also called the police and was waiting to see what would happen.
Much to my satisfaction I witnessed the return of the scooter to the young woman and they thanked me for my help. My husband and I just happened to be at the right place at the right time.
