This Self Balancing Electric Scooter Fits in the Back of a Smart Car

I'm still in awe of the Segway, which was first introduced in 2001.  That's 12 years ago.  A lot has changed since then, but the technology used by the inventor, Dean Kamen, is still sound today, as evidenced by this Self Balan...

Toyota Marries Vacuum Cleaner and Segway & Gets Winglet
