Yes, yesterday brought us the good news that Segway, Inc. will be releasing two new models of its personal transportation devices. To celebrate, jump to peruse a quick little retrospective on the one gadget that finally brought peace to a wanting world and healed man of all his ailments.

The Segway's been through a lot in its few years with us. Why, it was recalled less than two years after its introduction, but not before the Commander in Chief took a great fall off it, as seen above.

Controversy aside, the Segway was adopted by police forces across the country to help Johnny Law patrol America's mean streets. Look at that police officer: he means business.

Who could forget Steve Wozniak, or Woz as I call him, participating in some sort of Segway polo tournament last winter? It was a feast for the eyes.

Remember the New York City transit strike last December when the rest of the country made fun of New Yorkers, saying that they're little choo-choo trains weren't running? Segway came to the rescue...sort of! At least one nerd was spotted using the glorified walker to traverse over the cold, unforgiving sidewalks.



Are there more Segway stories? Of course there are.
