It’s called the TankChair, and it’s basically an extreme off-road wheelchair that owes more than a little to, well, tanks. It laughs in the face of streams, mud, snow, sand and gravel, and bumps up and down stairs without a hitch. Oh, and if someone annoys you, it’s great for showing them just who’s boss.
Its inventor came up with the idea a couple of years ago, after encountering problems when his wife’s wheelchair wasn’t able to plough through a forest in pursuit of an elk. As you do. There’s not a set price, as every chair is made specifically for its owner, taking into account their injury, weight and size. Pedestrians of Cambridge, be VERY afraid if Steven Hawking ever gets one of these…
