It has been a couple of years since there has been a post about Colin Furze on this blog (read the first one here), but here he is a new clip of him with his monster scooter playing around in the snow. Apparently there was reports that he had fitted the scooter with a flamethrower but was told by the authorities that it is illegal to fit one onto a scooter. Who knew? Enjoy the clip!

Top Gear is an insanely popular TV show in the UK that mainly focuses on cars. In their most recent episode, they address the issue of mobility for the disabled. The three hosts of the show felt that they were capable of building a scooter that was more capable yet cheaper than any existing scooter offered in the UK: as a result, they each constructed their own creation to resolve this issue. The result of their works have various degrees of success and also leads to many hilarious moments that will make wheelchair and scooter users laugh.
I suggest you watch it if you have the means to do so.

To push the wheelchair along, tracking motion is required and comfort of the user is paramount. More information and images after the jump.
