Segway Technology: What's Newton Got to Do with It?

In this video segment, produced for Teachers' Domain, physicist, engineer, and inventor Dean Kamen shares some insights into the role of physics in engineering and the invention process. Kamen explains how Newton's laws of motion are key to the design and operation of two of his inventions, the IBOT and the Segway Human Transporter, both of which are self-propelled, self-balancing devices that help people move around.
