Segway CTO to become VP of Product Design at Apple

According to a report on the SegwayChat forums, Doug Field, Segway’s Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Design and Engineering, is leaving the company to accept a position as Apple’s Vice President of Product Design. At Segway, Field and his team were wholly responsible for the development of the Segway Personal Transporter as well as all the research and development of future Segway products. Curiously, Apple CEO Steve Jobs was highly critical of the Segway’s early design, which was created largely by Field and his colleague Scott Waters. [via Engadget]
