Toyota bought Sony’s robot division and has presented a new way to get around (if you don’t count Dean Kamen’s Segway). They call it the Winglet, and it does a lot of what the Segway does, but a lot slower. Presumably a lot cheaper, too?
The Segway will travel at 12.5 mph (20 kph); the Winglet only goes 3.7 (6). I have a question: On the smaller unit, what are you supposed to do with your hands? At least the demonstrator could be playing a trumpet or something. Or text messaging. Or, in the US, eating a hamburger and fries.
