    I`m horrified. It`s bad enough that so many people are confined to desks for their entire work day, but now they don`t even want to walk to get there. *Sigh* No wonder obesity is becoming such a problem...

    Well, I don`t see that many benefits from this. Sure, it raises your level somewhat, but if you need to sit at a desk, or in a meeting, then what? Also, using stairs would be a major problem, as would bending to pick something off the floor if you drop it, and frankly at least a wheelchair gives you something to do with your arms - this guy spent a large proportion of that video looking like a camp android.

    If someone has very restricted mobility in their lower body, how would they even get in and out of this thing?

    It`s a good idea but with all new inventions there are some flaws, as it has alread been mentioned here in the comments, there are certain situations which sitting is necessary, and tho ppl with disabilities do have a good good excuss as to why they would be usuing it, but i also agree that you need something to do with your hands in this thing lol. I would have been much more happy if he actually explained how the damn thing works, how is he actually moving it and controlling the speed, and turns

    Absolutely epic for people who are paralysed.

    Crap idea for everyday use. Can`t lean over, can`t use stairs, and it`s probably slower than walking in the actualy office space.

    for paralized people it may be nice for them to be "standing" with everyone else but like other people said even if they droped something they wouldnt be able to get it unless he had a little grasper thing built into the side for them.

    But getting in and out would be a pain for them but that is already the case for them

    As for getting up and down stairs in a fire....wheelchairs are not that good at that as it is lol.

    "We would get so fat using this..."

    If these ever catch on, you can bet they`ll eventually make a bowl shaped one so you can just schlep your entire load of blubber into it and whisk away, leaving two parallel grooves in the ground behind you from the weight.

    Hmmm... and I thought it hurt when the bitch in the motorized scooter ran over my foot.

    That monstrosity would have ran it over, chewed it up, swallowed it, and then reconstruct a new one for the gimp inside the unit. Then I`d be like... "Hey you fat gimp bitch, you ate my god damn foot!

    .... wait, wtf am I talking about again?
