    Just guessing there must be a computerized, gyroscopic stabilization system similar to the Segway.

    Mits saw similar a few days ago, called my attention to it. I'll wait for the version what'll fetch th' CABs autonomously. I want to be INSIDE anything that flies.

    As George Carlin said: "To begin their boarding process, the airline announces they will preboard certain passengers. And I wonder, How can that be? How can people board before they board? This I gotta see. But before anything interesting can happen I’m told to get on the plane. “Sir, you can get on the plane now.” And I think for a moment. “On the plane? No, my friends, not me. I’m not getting on the plane; I’m getting in the plane! Let Evel Knievel get on the plane, I’ll be sitting inside in one of those little chairs. It seems less windy in there.”
