    I wonder how many inventors died from their own inventions?

    He was not the inventor, but the (recent) owner of the company...

    Correct, TH. I believe the inventor and the manufacturing company are in NH. Which by the way, developed a wheel chair that would climb stairs. In addition, they were at one time doing R&D on prosthetics that was pretty high speed stuff.

    Ah, I read something into it that wasn't there. Either way, to die by the means of your livelihood does not seem like a good thing. Well, dying by any means is not so fun. But you know what I mean....

    Cano, with all your segway travels, have you ever tried one of these? Seems like it would make for a dangerous ride. Kind of looks like a jet ski on tracks.

    I've seen this one in action, but it's not a segway, it doesn't balance itself (because it doesn't need to) It would be a fun to ride it too.
