So I was sitting around the house tonight with some friends watching Fritz Lang's movie M (from 1931). Suddenly, a little girl rode into a scene on what appeared to be a razor scooter. That's right, a little girl in Germany in the early 1930's on the latest breakthrough in skate technology - a razor scooter! We stopped the film and backed it up. Yep, we were seeing it right: steel frame, 2 small wheels, handle to steer. Kinda makes this lawsuit seem silly. (I think that's what they call prior art.) If only the scooter in M had a brake on the rear wheel, it could be worth $10,000.
