Giant wooden airplanes, bamboo radios, whittled headphones—the indigenous population of Tanna, an island in the South Pacific, is—or was—convinced that such replicas would, sooner or later, attract American planes loaded with treasures. An allusion to this cult and its yearnings projected onto inadequately comprehended technologies—something by no means uncommon in this neck of the woods either—is at the basis of this idiosyncratic Segway constructed by Peter Moosgaard (AT).
