Yesterday, you may have seen Giz catch Monster Cable CEO Noel Lee on a tricked out gold-rimmed Segway. Ridiculous as that was, we've now got video — and if you listen carefully, you can hear his assistant remarking that's a "million dollar Segway". Here's hoping that's hyperbole - not literal fact. We'll let you decide.
Here's some cricket coverage even Giz can get behind (well, in a schadenfreude sort of way). As Australia came back from lunch to bowl against India today, this Channel 9 cameraman hit a helmet and stacked his Segway on live TV. So...apparently you can fall off a Segway, and who knew they had them at the cricket?
Dean Kamen is brilliant, but I've always felt Segways were kinda for lazy people. Well, I did think that, until I got this email from Allen, a segway using reader with a disability. Doh!
At last, a really useful application for the Segway: Office skiing. Just attach a cable and go. It needs a homemade hoverboard for maximum speed and broken bones, but hopefully that will come soon.
Chimpanzees doing anything is funny. But a chimp named Pan-kun tear-assing into the woods on a Segway? Now that is comedy. And don't worry, he managed to survive the ordeal unscathed. My guess was that he was willing to take a risk or two in a daring attempt to escape his captors and the endless humiliation of Japanese television.
