Segway Polo


It's just like regular polo, except the players ride Segways instead of horses. The first organized match was in 2004, and now the game is played worldwide. The international championship tournament is called the Woz Challenge Cup (yes, named after Steve Wozniak) and has been held annually since 2006. Link -via Fuzzytopia

Please, please check out the episode of "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" when she tries to set up a friend with a cool geek by taking her to a segway polo tournament. She happens to be "dating" Woz at the time. Funny, awkward stuff.

That sign says "Dump Tank" in the back.

They used to be called Dunk Tanks, unless that's where you go to take a dump - maybe without having to step off your segway.

You know, it's not as nerdy...oh wait, yeah it is...it's insanely nerdy.

I saw it at the first Maker Faire a few years ago and wow...NERDS!!!
