wc29.jpg Exmovere Holdings, a biomedical engineering company, is focused on government and consumer applications for healthcare, security and mobility. This company developed Exmovere Chariot a self-balancing, hands-free, motorized wearable wheelchair that enables both disabled and non-disabled people to move around in an upright position.

The vehicle is controlled through sensors located near the lower torso. It requires minimal physical effort and allows users to closely approach and reach objects. It is powered by a battery located in the base. Will it be our prosthesis of the future? The experts of Exmovere Holdings call it a New Biotechnological Frontier. Exmovere Chariot in the office

  • I'm with Patricia on this one. (Absurd businessmen aside) Although it would be a respectable step towards better prosthetics for less abled people, there's no way you could get into it without assistance. Also, HA. What if you drop something- hilarious. Oh, man, ridiculous prototype.

  • Notice how you have to be able bodied to get in and out of this prototype. If they are serious about making this an alternative to wheel chairs then they need to make it possible to get into while sitting or lying down. Once you've done that how do you go to the bathroom? It's way too high up!

  • OK it's ugly as a sin, but I think you guys are missing the point. This type of device could give paraplegics and double-amputees a much higher quality of life. I think the functionality of it is great, even if the industrial design is putrid.

  • I've thought of a better name for this device: Huge Fucking Waste of Space.

  • @ Arnoud: Ok! For a moment I thought that office cleaner was a business man. My mistake. ;) | This reminds me of the lady bug. https://nextnature.net/?p=1738

  • Combining a Segway with a vacuum cleaner isn't a stupid idea at all. "R2D2009".

  • I have thought of a good name for this device: 'automobile'. Oh, no wait, that name is already taken. B.t.w. Did you know that at many offices the printer is deliberately placed at a distance, so that the office workers will have some exercise during the day? Well not anymore apparently. This product is so not mindful of what it means to be human, it is blinding me. @john weeks: I bet there is a Segway inside that costume.

  • When seeing those businessmen with their blackberries, ties, and suitcases. I always felt something was missing. ;)

  • So, Segway isn't going to sue them because they used a crappy "transformers" Halloween costume around one of their products?
