IT may not be all IT’s cracked up to be Dean Kamen, inventor of IT (codenamed Ginger), has stepped forward to dispell some of the rumours surrounding his latest invention. The “proposal quoted several prominent technology leaders out of context, without their doubts, risks and maybes included. This, together with spirited speculation about the unknown, has lead to expectations that are beyond whimsical.” Kamen says the project has promise, “but nothing of the earth shattering nature that people are conjuring up.” Oh well.
