Am I on to something here???

Taken from http://cbsnews.com/now/story/0,1597,269165-412,00.shtml:

His company, DEKA, short for Dean Kamen, sits in the old factory distict of Manchester, N.H., with 200 engineers working in a kind of scientific utopia, creating things Kamen thinks will make for a better world, such as a scooter that generates electricity.

Really, a scooter that generates electricity? Did someone just drop the bomb?

No bomb was dropped. That scooter was shown on 60 minutes 2 last night. It was much larger than the scooter pictures that have been floating around the internet. It is possible that IT is an imporvement on that scooter, but that scooter is not IT.
