Yikes - will this move the earth too?
Correspondent Glen, (see last posting), has alerted me to this fabulous new invention Amazingly it is born out of Christchurch by inventor Grant Ryan. And isn't it great it has received such strong backing from local innovation funding sources. Love the youtube ad, though a friend who saw one of these in operation wondered about the fairly high speed on pedestrian areas. I wonder too about balance and backpacks - not many people without a car travel without some sort of hand or back luggage. Perhaps if it becomes a popular form of transit it will also impact upon the shape and nature of public transport.
