I’ve been reading this book, as the title of this post suggests, it’s titled Code Name Ginger. This is Steve Kemper’s inside look as the record-keeper on the events leading up to and concluding with the launch of Dean Kamen’s Segway vehicle
I’ve just started reading the book (I’m about 6 chapters in), but thus far it has proven to be a very interesting read. It is shaping up to be a real fascinating look into the mind of Dean Kamen - the founder of DEKA and inventor of not only the Segway, but the first insulin pump and an all-terrain electric wheelchair (dubbed iBot). I will be back with a more complete summary and opinion on the story of this remarkable device and its founder.
