Segway Golf Caddy

by Al

The Segway doesn’t seem to of taken off that much in the UK, I’ve never actually seen one in normal use which kind of reminds me of the Sinclair C5. The Segway GT however may change that. The GT stands for Golf Transporter, and differs from a “normal” Segway by having an attached golf bag carrier and a place for your score card. It’s an interesting addition to what I …

Gen-H4 Personal Helecopter

Does anyone read Japanese? I could really use a proper translation of the website for Gen Corp and their H-4 personal helecopter. Odd things from Japan reckons it will fly at 56 MPH, although google translate reckoned about 6!
