This invention, the "human transporter" is a huge deal because?

  Ok. The "What is IT" invention isn't all it was beefed up to be, at least to me. I was expecting a new engine, some new form of power, a cheap power generator that works a really long time, anti-gravity, or something; well bigger.

  This "scooter" was a major letdown, and CERTAINLY didn't live up to it's hype - just like Dean Kamen said it wouldn't. Guess everyone should have listened to him. Well I did, but before that, like I said, I expected something more.

  Tech industry bigwigs were all chatter with quotes like "they will build cities around it" - "you'll have no trouble selling it, but will they let you"... I am surprised to hear so much from them because I don't consider this that important of an invention.

  Important invention? Sure. As important as the internet? NOT EVEN CLOSE. Will they build cities around it? 100 years from now, why would they. 10 years from now, not likely. Tomorrow or Today, it's not going to happen.

  So after all the hype, all the build up, all of the "BS talk", as the human race we're left with a standup scooter with 2 front wheels.

  Ginger isn't supposed to TIP OVER, my judgement is that it already has tipped over as far as living up to it's hype. Ginger is already down for the count in my book.
