forgot about this! friday night in chapel hill as a bunch of us were walking to the wine bar, we were passed by a fellow going the opposite direction, dragging a stick with wheels on it. I said, "Is that a Segway?" He confirmed that it was, and said he'd worn the battery down so it wasn't rideable at the moment-- hence the dragging. my first time seeing one in person.

I saw that guy too! I didn't talk to him but I figured he must have been dragging it because it ran out of juice.
The first Seguay I ever saw was in Houston at the art car parade. It was decorated with a tiny persian rug on the platform and puffs of cotton obscuring the wheels. A flying carpet!
