The Segway

the inventor of the seaway is Dean Kamen. the product was launched in 2002 an when launched it was claimed that the Segway was the future mode of transport for people and would eventually replace the car. well obviously this was not the case as global sales figures have shown that sales of the product have only reached into the tens of thousands. as it has been a flop. Dean Kamen did recently say that the Segway would can never completely replace the car, because it doesn’t have near the same capabilities. its speed range is 20 kph and it can only store enough energy for 24 km. that is in fact quite poor performance slightly faster than walking speed but only for 24 km . there are now electric mopeds that can reach 40 kph and last for over 30 km. that would make the Segway quite useless. also other reasons like each country defines the seaway differently e.g. some states don’t permit its use on side walks, roads or bicycle lanes. where some countries states that it must b insured and treated as a moped. so my view of the Segway is that it is a toy an expensive cool looking useless toy with no real world applications.

Armadillo 161: cool piece of design or just plain pointless

Armadillo 161:

the Armadillo bracelet is a newly designed piece of jewelry by RogueDZN.the Armadillo 161 is made entirely of aerospace grade titanium and its name is Armadillo 161 is for the 161 parts that make up this bracelet. I will indeed admit that this is a very cool piece of jewelry and if I had one myself I would wear it because it looks kick ass. but really whats the point ?

when all is said and done the Armadillo 161 is just a bracelet not a necessary product that one would really need. what exactly is the reason for using aerospace grade titanium. . I’ll tell you, there is none it’s just that when someone who spends an obscene amount of money and guaranteed this bracelet will cost an obscene amount ( price has not been revealed yet).  he will got to his mate and show it off as proof to just how good he is doing in life the, the self indulging sod. But the worse thing is the knowing that a team of highly qualified skilled designers spent a lot of time and effort designing this product when that time and effort could ave been directed to greater matters in the world but then again the dollors always have the last say. . all i know is the next time i want a bracelet i’m going to TK MAX £5.99 . as for is it pointless or not just because its pretty doesn’t mean its useful.
