Dean Lawrence Kamen is an American engineer, inventor, and entrepreneur born in 1951. He is the inventor of Segway as we know it.
The Segway was invented as a wheelchair that would allow those who needed it to sit higher than the ground. However, the end result was very innovative because it turned out as a product that fit very well so that everyone could visit the streets of any city.
The word Segway is thought to have been created from the word “segue” the meaning of which is “smooth transition.” However, Segways are known as “personal carriers”.
