Posted:I can't help but wonder,who's going to be the first to twirl poi on Ginger?(AKA, IT, Segway Human Transporter, etc.).I'd do it if I could...Maybe I'll ask Kamen if I can try it out...That thing looks like lots of fun to ride, good for getting across Boeing buildings and such, if nothing else.

Posted:Ohhhhhh that thing..Another one of those bigger, better, faster type of devices they keep making for us humans... Far be it for me to say, but I think walking is the only from of a work out a good portion of our fast food super sized population gets... I dont think coming up with a cute little wheely device was a good idea.. But at the same time, i can see people riding the thing to get to the gym....As for Poi on the thing... I move around to much, and just dont see it happening..

Posted:Yeah, everyone got reaally excited about this thing 'people will design cities around Ginger' and lots of other utopian crap about how this would be so great and save the planet. Personally i don't think that a nicely Photoshopped image of some American dream street scene makes up for the batteries running out.I rather spin them than spin on them. But i'm likely to change my mind once i actually see one. ever.

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.
