Title: The Science of Segway
Url: http://www.segway.com/about-segway/segway-technology.php
Publisher: Segway Inc.
Description: From the makers of the Segway, the Human Transporter, comes the Science of the Segway site. The device's most impressive feature is its ability to balance on its own. Designed using the human body as a model, the Segway uses "dynamic stabilization" to keep riders from falling over. Visitors will find an explanation of how the personal transportation device uses a special type of gyroscope called a solid-state angular rate sensor constructed with silicon.
