Attack of the Chairbot.


When I was in high school, my brother and his friends would play a futuristic PC game called Mechwarrior 2. Could this Hubo FX-1 Chairbot be the first step towards creating deadly world-ravaging Mechwarriors? Maybe ... although the designers might first want to work on the speed before field testing in the war zone.

Given that it's called a chairbot, I'm sure the designers had a much more altruistic aim in mind (I just can't figure out what it might have been). Hit play or go to link [youtube] to see the chairbot in action. via Gizmodo

It's awesome that nerds' love for gadgets help further the ends of many people with disabilities... although I'd much rather have a Professor X chair than a chairbot.
