Yeah, It's Pretty Neat

so i got to ride on a segway today. a friend of my sister works for them in their public relations department, and she had hers in her car when she stopped by my parent's house.

for the record, it's just as cool as people say, and i wish i was in a situation where i could justify paying that much for one.

riding on it really feels like you're in some kind of sci-fi story, and i am in awe of how much neat technology must go into them. it's for things like this that we have a patent system, because there are ideas that are just cool enough that awarding a temporary monopoly on it is absolutely worth it if we can get the details out in public in return.
