Gizmos and Whatnots / Just Because

A self-balancing scooter!

I can’t help it! My nerdy side is showing today… I found this news item on the BBC news site and couldn’t stop myself from mentioning it here. I know there have been a few others attempted but frankly, some look more like mobility scooters. This, on the other hand, the C1 from LIT Motors is beautiful…

I'm a research fellow at an Australian university where I work on a number of projects. These include projects to do with new media and migration and the Chinese diaspora in Australia, projects on the Malaysian internet, ethno-religious issues in Singapore and Malaysia. And, before I forget many of the photos I use on this site were taken by my sister, Jessie and myself. All rights are reserved.
