Industry pundits expect Ginger to be revealed on ABC's Good Morning America show today.

Ginger enjoys the support of high profile IT figures, including Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos. It's reputed to be a personal-mobility device or scooter of some kind. Details have been scarce, fuelling much speculation over the last year.

Jobs, who has seen Ginger, reportedly believes the device could inspire architects and planners to build cities around it, according to Cnet.

Cnet also reports a flurry of patent applications were made by device inventor Dean Kamen since September. Kamen and his company, DEKA Research and Development, won the National Medal for Technology in 2000. Presented by ex-US President Clinton, the award was presented "for inventions that have advanced medical care worldwide, and for innovative and imaginative leadership in awakening America to the excitement of science and technology".

The report examines the patents and existing speculation, suggesting Ginger will be a single-person, motorized, scooter-like machine.

UPDATE: This morning's New York Times has published an interview with Ginger's developer, in which it reveals full details of the $3,000 personal transportation device.
