The Segway Launches

Well here it is. IT, or Ginger is actually called the Segway, and its finally been unveiled on Good Morning America.

Two wheeled scooter. Hmm. Can it live up to the hype? Will it change the way we build cities? Will Dean Kamen become the world’s richest man because of it? What other parallel inventions will come out in the next few months and years. Is the Segway just the beginning?

Dean Kamen’s Pro Segway 2 looks like it could be fun.

The question is... Will American's give up their love for the automobile?? Europeans have a distinct advantage over us. Many of their inner cities have been closed to auto traffic for decades. I don't personally see where they have suffered for it.

But... I do worry! Are we going to give up our leg muscles for this device??? Will we continue to drive any distance over 1 - 2 miles, and then use our IT for short distance trips? Will we ever walk or run???
