What is a Segway? Wikipedia defines a Segway as “The Segway PT (originally Segway HT) is a two-wheeled, self-balancing personal transporter by Segway Inc. Invented by Dean Kamen and brought to market in 2001. HT is an initialism for ‘human transporter’ and PT for ‘personal transporter’.” We call them fun!
