April 01, 2002|Bloomberg News

Three of inventor Dean Kamen's human transporters, the first to be sold to consumers, were auctioned for $364,800 on Amazon.com, the largest Web retailer.

The scooter-like vehicles were sold to buyers in Texas, Illinois and Virginia, said closely held Segway, which was founded by Kamen.

The auction drew more than 500 bids.

Kamen's nonprofit organization FIRST, or For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, will receive the money from the auction, which began Feb. 19 and ended last week.
