Melbourne ID student Jake Eadie’s electric wheelchair designs are meant to switch between two modes: Sitting and standing, the latter to “[Challenge] able-bodied people’s perceptions of wheelchair users.”
looks futuristic, but I this is very plausible.Â If they could design it so the wheels where a bit smaller and the frame a tad less conspicuous I think it wouldn’t been too weird seeing something like this at the mall.Favorite This!

Plausible, but ridiculous and stupidly overengineered. The dude clearly just wonted something that would like flashy, instead of something built to do the job.
One of them has a spherical wheel which wouldn’t even have to have fixed horizonal movement, WTF.
