The AP (via CNN) reports that the FDA has approved a new wheelchair, called the iBOT, that can climb stairs. The story talks about how the device relies on gyroscopes, and how it’s being sold by a division of Johnson & Johnson.
Not until the 15th graf does the story mention that the wheelchair was invented by the highly regarded medical inventor Dean Kamen, who put most of the iBOT technology into the Segway scooter — which is something that maybe a lot of readers might have heard about.
Me, I’d have found some way to work the Segway into the lede. But then, I don’t work for the AP.
