    Tek Robotic Mobilization Device

    http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2012/03/this-amazing-device-just-made-wheelchairs-obsolete/

    Cool new kind of “segway wheelchair” not sure how relevant it will be for most people but I would love one.

    I’ve not seen anything like this before. It looks fantastic if you can manage to pull yourself upright.

    I love a good gadget me, but they only showed it in superflat floor situations like mails.. the world aint flat how does it cope on uneven pavements.

    I agree Cat, this is something heading in a good direction though.

    Looks like it’s a powered mobile standing frame. Good one, I’d say and looks like it could give a good stand and be useful around the house. But it’s not a mobilisation device.
