The inventor Dean Kamen has now presented the prototype of his vehicle controlled by six processors, the testers from Time Magazine are enthusiastic about the Ginger, also known as the Segway . The device is powered by two electric motors, can go up to twelve miles per hour (~ 20 km/h) and has a range of 15 miles (~ 25 km). It is controlled by inclination of the body, whereby the elaborate electronics with several gyroscopes (gyroscope device) ensure that you always have a secure hold, even turning on the spot is possible with the Segway. The Segway in the professional version is intended for the post office and the police at a price of around 8,000 US dollars, while the home version for everyone is expected to cost around 3,000 US dollars. It should be possible to buy the Segway in about a year.
