Description
 
The unforgettable story of “Ginger,” officially named the Segway Human Transporter: a self-balancing, electric-powered people mover that inventor Dean Kamen called “magic sneakers.” This book documents the birth of a marvelous new technology and the feats of its remarkable inventor, his team of engineers, and the financiers who pursued them. Takes us inside a world of ingenious engineering, in which improbable ideas become real: wheelchairs climb stairs, scooters balance on 2 wheels, polluted water is made clean. Chronicles the wheeling and dealing of high-rolling investors. Delivers business lessons about marketing, innovation, leadership, and entrepreneurship, while recounting a technological adventure that will be studied for decades.
