A Segway for your iPad

WWDC doesn't open for a few hours still but the crowds have formed and one gadget is already getting deserved attention.

The iStick is a prototype of a remote controlled Segway for your iPad! Taptic Toys built the two wheeled 'stand' that, like a Segway, maintains its balance automagically.

A background app runs on the iPad so you can control the direction via Bluetooth and a companion app on another iOS device. Then you can run FaceTime to perform mobile videoconferencing! Watch for a commercial version next year!
