Death by Segway
You'd be forgiven for thinking that death by Segway would somehow be related to heart failure due to the embarrassment of being caught driving one, but the reality behind this recent tech death is far more tragic. UK Segway boss Jimi Heselden was inspecting the grounds of his home whilst riding an off-road Segway, when he was believed to have lost control of the vehicle and careened over a nearby cliff. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Weird Al Yankovich parody doesn't seem so funny now, does it?
All sci-fi fans will know that whilst technological advancement makes our mundane little lives easier and more rewarding everyday, take your mind off its potential dangers for just a few seconds and it can turn around and bite you in the arse, sometimes with fatal consequences. When it comes to tech, complacency breeds death.
