    Everyone I hope is familiar or has atleast heard of Dean Kamens Segway human transporter. Well I came across this photo which really got me thinking. Steve Jobs is one of the major financial investors of Kamens project. So it only makes sense. Apple helped design the Segway interface and OS. What else could it be in the image. Take a close look at the control panel you can clearly see the calssic two face Mac logo. I have emailed the image to macrumors if your interested. I hope they post it because it is very fascinating. This of course is complete speculation but you go to the Segway site and see for your self.

    I don't think it has anything to do with Apple. It's just a face saying if Segway is happy or not... Read the text newt to the picture:

    Perhaps, but it sure is fun speculating about what these two companies could do working together, shaping the future. I still think that face looks like the Mac Face. It's possible that only half of the face indicates a lean towards the right. When the machine is on stable ground both halves are visible indicating a happy machine... maybe?

    close but no cigar

    it's similar to the Mac OS face....but that's not it...it's too narrow....maybe just very similar?

    I've been known to be wrong though...
