Wheelchair + Tank Treads = Tankchair

This creation is quite possibly one of the most intimidating wheelchairs in existence at the moment. Brad Soden, the inventor of this wonderful contraption, built this chair for his wife when a car accident left her paralyzed. A failed attempt to get close to a herd of elk during a camping trip was the motivation for Brad to build something that would remove as many barriers as possible. The result of this effort was a chair that can tackle snow, gravel, sand, shallow streams, logs, and even stairs less than 45 degrees. With 4 batteries and a powerful 1hp electric motor, there are very few obstacles that can stop this beast of a whcclchair. Want one? Check out their site.
