Carlos Ghosn — the former superstar automotive executive turned international fugitive — is in Lebanon, apparently, after escaping Japan where he was awaiting trial.

There are still entirely way more questions than answers surrounding how, exactly, he got to Lebanon (apparently through Turkey). The 65-year-old is expected to give a press conference soon, with the aid of a public relations firm hired this week, so stay tuned.

Egg-way?

Segway is back. This time with an egg-shaped "transportation pod" that's part electric wheelchair and part WALL-E hover-chair. Also it goes 24 miles per hour.

Some prototypes will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show this month if you want to try it out. If a Business Insider reporter sees one in the wild, you can expect a full review.
