Get ready for a Segway-powered episode of Let’s Get Inventin’ – check this out from their Facebook page:
New Zealand has one of the highest road cone counts per km of road in the world. Scott Faville (11) from Hamilton was inspired when he noticed a road crew of three men and a massive truck were needed to place out road cones one by one.
Scott’s automated Road cone ‘Coneordinator’ plops out cones one-by-one at the press of a button, and turns a mundane task into a fun one-man job. Scott even re-invents the road cone by making a cardboard disposable version.
Can Scott ‘Segway’ himself to glory by winning the world’s first official ‘Road Cone Placing Race’ against a team of professionals or will rain and wind blow Scott’s fluorescent cardboard dreams away?
Watch Let’s Get Inventin’ this Saturday on TV2 at 4:30pm.
