Segway @ Ngee Ann Polytechnic
Dean L. Kamen is an American inventor and is best known for inventing the Segway PT. Segway is an electric transporter using gyroscopic technology and it utilizes a hi-tech control system. Ngee Ann recently showcased the Segway and NP students will have the chance to utilize this technology into action. An interesting fact, Mr. Kamen attended a polytechnic education.
I had the chance to try this efficient and zero-emission transporter during NP's 2012 open house. Using my body weight (XX kg), I was able to control the two parallel wheels by moving my mass to the direction I prefer.
