I is for ingenious


please click on this photo to see segway details up close


today is abc wednesday. doesn't it seem like we just had a post about abc wednesday? ? ? time seems to be going by faster every week! anyway I think these segways really are ingenious. they make hardly any noticeable noise and seem
at least to be an excellent idea for mall security. right before I snapped this photo, the young man riding the machine was giving me a big smile. I'm afraid I was a bit of a space cadet and just gave him a blank look. sorry mr. segway man, I was just deep in thought! thankfully I woke up from my stupor in time to snap this photo.

I haven't seen one of those, but looks like it could be a lot more fun than walking.

And fun to ride ...

Ingenious indeed

How cool is that?

Pietro said...

Interesting post!
I've just seen one of those a few days ago running cheerfully on a sidewalk! :-)

I have yet to see one of those in person. They look cool, but if I rode one, I'm sure I'd spin out of control. I'll stick to my feet, I think...

They have a movie about the mall security cop driving one of these... Ha! :)

Jay said...

And the man riding it makes a nice 'i' shape too! LOL!

Wow! I've never seen one in real life and this may be as close as I get. Great snap -

The segways ARE very ingenious...Clever "I"...when I enlarged your pic, Sept 11 sign is in the back...

Lily Hydrangea said...

Good eye Carol. That is in fact a September 11th Memorial in the form of a mural at the mall.
