    Wouldn't it be cool if a wheelchair could be designed to unfold into a supersleek racer with a push of a button and you don't have to waste time getting in and out of a car.

    Dear Wise-

    Have you seen the 4 wheel Segway (Centaur)?

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/jigZYtqDmEk...</param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/jigZYtqDmEk&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    It takes gadget and accessability to a whole new... NEXT LEVEL.

    With a few hand controls and leg straps, it could be giddy up to GO even for some Quads!

    OH .........................the possibilities

    Yes, I like the Centaur. I find also this concept of a wheel that is attached at the top to be very interesting. It certainly saves a lot of room not to have an axle. Wise.

    I can't figure out how they attach the front wheel without an axle. Is there any detail on that part of the car? I wonder which set of wheels are the drive wheels? Is this just a concept car or is there an actual functional model?

    I was actually thinking about something on those lines the other day, after sitting in the cold throwing my chair in my car. I think that would be a decent idea, i would def. look into it if there was such a thing.
