steve was an ass for saying that cities would have to be built around segways, that was the one statement that got me all hyped about IT. but hopefully steve can deliver better than kamen, because i think the segway sucks ass.
Dean Already is worth more than 10 milion. He's been inventing stuff in the medical feild for rears and years. He ounsan island which he has declaired it's own countrie and he ans a non agression pact with the US (as a joke ... i think) . also he has several planes and helocopters and cars and stuff like that. This is the riskiest thing that he's don yet the consumer market is much trickier than the medical market is.
Dean Kamen is truly revolutionary. I am part of the US FIRST robotics competition ( http://www.usfirst.org ). And it is the ultimate experience of a lifetime. Dean has a lot of friends including many from prestigious corporations like Delphi, GM, Microsoft, Fed Ex, etc. I don't know about any relation between Steve Jobs and Dean Kamen. Apple doesn't any FIRST teams, but I know Motorola does.
