Hey, I checked out your website and you got to work on some pretty cool stuff. I think that segway should have given you even an old model to play around with for designing that cool lcd thing. Unless of course the pay was much better than that. I am about an hour away from chicago by the way. When my family goes to chicago I see at least 4 people on segways or knock of ones.

We actually did have a beat up test unit in the office which was very useful when figuring out viewing angles & mounting positions. I have yet to ride the new version with the tilting control stick, but the styling is much more interesting than on the older versions.
I just wish that the things were cheaper. I bought an electric scooter that goes faster for only a couple hundred. That is way cheaper than segways. But the segways have a cool factor and you dont have to sit down. Well I guess you dont have to on the scooter either but you go faster with less air resistance.
