Video: Dean Kamen’s IBOT “Wheelchair” Power Chair

The IBOT is Dean Kamen’s on-road, off road, all terrain, stair climbing, power chair (“wheelchair”) which can also go into two wheel mode to raise the rider into a higher, more eye-level position.

It isn’t exactly new, but it is actually out in the real world; instead of being just some super cool prototype in a lab.

Here’s a nice clear, although in-lab, video showing the features:

Here is a real world video (poorer quality video but showing off road use):

How stable is it in two wheel mode? Oh, stable enough to go to the gun range! Seriously!

The commercial even shows it on the beach! Sorry, video removed at YouTube: 

How much? Oh, about $26,000 according to the videos. Ouch! For more information, see www.ibotnow.com.
