Segway Company Owner Drives Segway Off Cliff

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

In one of those ironic twists of fate that prove that truth is indeed stranger than fiction, one of the current owners of Segway, Inc. was reported to have died on September 27 after driving a Segway over a cliff and falling 30 feet into the River Wharfe in West Yorkshire, U.K.  Jimi Heselden, a British millionaire,  was part of a group that purchased Segway in early 2010.

Since their introduction in 2002, the two-wheeled upright vehicles have never quite lived up to the early buzz they generated (Steve Jobs was quoted as saying the Segway would be as big as the PC).  However, Segways have gained popularity in niche markets such as police departments, corporate campuses and golf courses.

Starting with the first pre-assembled Apple computers that Jobs marketed with Steve Wozniak, it can really be said that Jobs played a major role in making digital technology part of everyday life.

The iPod has revolutionized how we listen to music, and Pixar Animation Studios has shown that computer animation can be used to make amazing feature length films. Jobs had a hand in each of these innovations. Techies around the world are wishing Jobs the best and hoping he’ll soon be bringing us the next big thing.
