While the Segway HT hasn't been a huge commercial success in the consumer sector, people who build robots are tricking Segways out for all sorts of things. NASA's is taking their "Robonaut B" robotic astronaut, which can romp around the space station gripping things with its human-like hands and seeing things with its video camera eyes, and popping him onto a Segway and rolling around the joint and even the moon. Plus there's also the SPAWAR Systems Center in San Diego's Segway RMP (Robotic Mobility Platform) project which is mainly for moving weapons and military stuff around.
