Ginger: surprise; it’s got wheels

TIME has been helping hype ‘Ginger’ for a while now; a cool new consumer gadget that threatens to turn the world on its head. Bigshots were investing and the media was kept guessing for years, but it’s out now. It’s officially called ‘Segway‘ now, and is – as predicted – a kind of motorised scooter. It looks kind of weird, but aparrently it does all it’s magic by strategic weight-shifting, and – best of all – will apparently shuffle you around the city for a day on about 5 cents of electricity.
Is it too late to ask for one for Christmas?
