Well, it had to happen. And it did, 18 years ago! OK, it's not really an Electric Velocipede, but it was an electric tricycle. And now he's test-driving the Segway (since everyone kept pronouncing segue: se-gooey?):

You could order it from their website. Though it'll be coming from the UK, so you may have to wait a while.

Apparently the good folks at TTA Press are sending me to me. They are most kind. When I get it, I will talk more about it here.

Back to listing of websites! If you're a loyal reader of BoingBoing (like I am) you no doubt already saw this. But here's a cool site full of space ships and outer space illustrations from old kids books.

This is the type of artwork that I love, no matter how bad the science is!

Some of the later stuff isn't as fun (the rockets aren't as sleek), but I have to like 1974's Build Your Own Moon Settlement. Just shows what we thought/hoped would happen.
