First shown in December 2001 and made available to the public at the beginning the following year, the Segway, first called “The Human Transporter” had a dream: replacing cars in today’s world.

 Dean Kamen, the inventor, as been reported to have said: “[The Segway] will be to the car what the car was to the horse and buggy”.

The industry talked about the Segway with a lot of optimism, going as far as saying that is was going to be as big at the Internet.

As we now know today, the Segway hasn’t replaced our means of daily transportation and is used as a touristic activity or in shopping malls.
