    Thats very cool and futuristic, but you wont be able to fit through any doorways with that lol. With a windshield like that, you can probably drive that on the streets or stroll in the parks.

    Dont think it was designed for the disabled, but instead for a personal vehicle.

    Correct, it's not a wheelchair...It's a new single person concept car...Goes 30mph and is street legal.

    It's a product of "Universal Design", much like my Segway. I hope they go to market.

    Toyota would be surprised how many in our community might find this very useful.
