Wheelchair of the Future?

Is this the wheelchair/car of the future?



The PUMA (Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility) is a collaboration between General Motors and Segway which was announced April 2009.

With a little adaptation this could be COOL Wheelchair Technology. I wonder if something like this might one day replace the IBOT. What do you think?

  1. I just wanted to come and say thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I stayed here for a while...poking around. Since I do not function from a wheelchair, these advancements have been under my radar. They are indeed "cool".

    In my post "When Faith Blinds Us" I challenged us all to see without pity those who live out their days differently than we do. In a way I think "pity" is a form of disablism. Am I on track with that thought?

    The blogosphere is such a fascinating world! Thanks for being part of what makes life on the end of my mouse so interesing!
