Side Note: Segway Shelter Competition at the Construct Show

The Segway Personal Transporter has many uses. Segway is marketing its PT's for use on guided tours of local attractions and for commuting.

As part of the Construct Show & CSI Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana last week, the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) sponsored a student competition: design a Segway shelter for use along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail. The Cultural trail "connects neighborhoods, Cultural Districts and entertainment amenities, and serves as the downtown hub for the entire central Indiana greenway system."

Using a standard kit of parts, college and university students were to design a safe, secure, weather-resistant enclosure where guests could leave their transporter on the trail for hours at a time. Students were then to build the shelter over two days of the Show.
