    Now the Ibot is truly a "Unicorn"
    Maybe GM or some other American manufacturer will use some of that stimulus money to try expanding their business. The way Honda makes autos, motorcycles, lawnmowers and generators. Diversification at its fullest. Until then "Viva la France"

We are in luck for tech support, parts and on site help until the end of 2013. The factory will not build or sell anymore as of the last day of December. I will try to get parts wherever I can, but being the newest model with different arm rests, back and leg rests may prove challenging. There are plenty of machinests that can match everything, but it won't be cheap. I wanted the new docking for driving when I get older, but I'll have to build one of those too. As long as I have batteries and the software stays in tack it will last a long time! They sold the chair at a loss anyway and the extra strain put on the launch of the chair by the FDA was a huge hurdle. The stair climbing was the hold up. No deep pockets here to pick up the ball and run with it!!!!
    If you figure out the driving dock/lock thing, lemme know!
