This probably wasn't what Dean Kamen had in mind when he invented the Segway.

A photo of a man about to take his personal transportation device on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago taken last year surfaced recently on Reddit.

Tim Rodriguez, of Streeterville, Ill., was on the way back from South By Southwest last year when his girlfriend Brie Black snapped this pic of a man casually driving his Segway on to Chicago's Lake Shore while also taking a call on his phone.

An unverified comment on Reddit mentioned that the man owns a Segway tour company that operates out of Chicago's Navy Pier, but it's unlikely this particular tour is offered as part of the package.
