Months before their release, a lot of attention was already given to the Segway -- a two-wheeled scooter that automatically balances the rider standing on top of it, even when standing still.

The Segway is marketed to companies and individuals who do a lot of pounding the pavement -- like postal carriers, Federal Express, park rangers -- or people with disabilities who have trouble getting around.

"You can take it anywhere, indoors, outdoors, shopping centers, it is now considered an assisted mobility device," Josh Gannon of The Segway Experience touted during a demonstration in Green Bay.
