The Living Fractal writes: "CNET has coverage of Toyota's recently unveiled "Winglet". Similar to the Segway, but only capable of traveling around 3.7mph (compared to the Segway's relatively speedy 12.5mph), the Winglet promises to replace walking at a brisk pace with... motorized transport. In other news, 34% of United States citizens are now considered obese. At least now this demographic will be able to get to the food court in the mall without burning precious calories. Perhaps a good idea is to limit use of these to those with legitimate handicaps? Thoughts?"
