NYC Unveils VPG MV-1 Taxi

New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) recently unveiled VPG's MV-1 that has recently been approved for taxi and limousine duty in the city.  Other cities, such as Philadelphia, have also recently approved this vehicle for taxi and limo use.  Currently New York City has placed 30 MV-1s for test usage in their Access-A-Ride program, a program that is criticized by many disabled New Yorkers as being too costly and impractical for the disabled population to use.  More information after the jump.

Coming Soon: Nitro Circus: The Movie 3D

The Nitro Circus crew is a group of extreme athletes/stuntpeople/adrenaline junkies that have traveled all over the world in order to some of the most insane and over the top stunts that have never been attempted.  In the case of this blog, one of the members of this crew happens to be Aaron Fotheringham. You can see the Hardcore Sitter about a minute and a half into the trailer as he attempts to drive his manual wheelchair through a complete loop.  It is hopefully only a taste of the epic insanity that Aaron and the rest of the crew have in store.  To add to the spectacle of this production, this movie will be shown in 3D. Check out the trailer above!
