The Winglet

As Tina Fey once said on SNL’s Weekend Update, “the Segway is just another way for people to get hit by cars”. This is most likely true. However, I’m just a little bit excited about Toyota’s foray into this territory with the Winglet. After seeing this on Yahoo today, it got me pretty interested. I live in a city where you would easily be creamed by a truck or SUV while trying to ride around on one of these. In all fairness though, the area of Tulsa in which I live is relatively walkable in most places. Downtown would probably be the best. I can see a lot of these contraptions getting stolen about as much as a bike or even an iPod.

Nevertheless, it’s pretty cool and on the downside, is just another excuse for people not to walk/exercise.
