    I read about this yesterday in a somewhat longer Bloomberg article that notes:

    Perlman has some pretty big hurdles to overcome, but more than one true innovative technology has had similar difficulties getting backing.

    Whether it's a personal cell or a 'priority' account for a better connection, you'll pay more.

    Whenever someone makes a big claim like that on how revolutionary something is, I get skeptical. Kind of like the comments Jeff Bezos made about the Segway.

    Hopefully he's more successful with this than he was with OnLive.

    Right, but it was Bezos that said (back when we didn't know what it really was other than Ginger) "cities will be redesigned around this device". I don't think Kamen himself ever indicated anything so grandiose, but it's one example of many on how something is supposed to change the world, or be the invention of the 21st century etc, and is little more than a whimper.
