Inventor of the Segway, Dean Kamen attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute for two years before dropping out.
He now holds more than 80 U.S. patents, and has become famous for his Segway PT, an electric, self-balancing human transporter complete with a computer-controlled gyroscopic stabilization and control system.
He is also an illustrator for many EC Comics publications, including Mad and Weird Science.
In a morbidly ironic twist, 62-year-old millionaire and Segway Inc. owner, Jimi Heselden, died in a Segway-related accident in 2010 when he accidentally drove the electric scooter off a cliff and into a river.
