Two self-balancing robots built by Professor Emiritus Kazuo Yamafuji at
Tokyo's University of Electro-Communications stand side-by-side in
Tokyo January 10, 2002. The one in the background is similar to the
Segway Human Transporter built by award-winning U.S. inventor Dean
Kamen, which was formerly known under its code-name of "Ginger" and
unveiled a month ago. The robot in the foreground is a later prototype.
