This is the most amazing wheelchair I have ever seen. Watch the videos to see how it climbs stairs and lifts people up in the air with the balance function.“Unlike any other mobility device, the Independence iBot 4000 Mobility System uses a combination of unique, innovative functions to take you where you want to go…and to do what you want to do.”

He had these out for well over a year before the Segway was even prototyped. This is what led to the Segway. He developed the chair while working for Johnson & Johnson.

Chairs like this are great until the battery dies and then you are stuck, there is no way for the person in the chair to move without help at that point.
