Why legs rule and wheels don't. An interesting article relating to the segway

http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/10.11/bots.html
My favorite quote from the article:
Quote:
At Deka, it's easy to tell who's in charge. Large paintings of Kamen grace the walls of the complex, all rendered by Dean's father, Jack, who was an illustrator for EC Comics during the 1950s. The paintings are done in different styles and reflect the many faces of Dean: Day-Glo Dean, Lord of the Manor Dean, Shaggy Engineer Dean. Kamen is a man who knows his place in history, even before history has figured it out.

Very intresting Article, Might be intresting to see a segway doing that with a person on it, seems like it may be a rough ride though
