TankChair gets updated, goes where no wheelchair has gone before


This extremely extreme wheelchair mixes two very distinct, yet not disharmonious, aesthetics: tank treads and, what appears to be, the most comfortable seating apparatus modern science can come up with. This isn't the first TankChair – that one came out in 2006 – but the newer TankChair has made some notable improvements, including a lower center of gravity, more torque, a stronger chassis, and the aforementioned comfy seat. We're not sure about the cost or availability but, for the right person, we can imagine the new TankChair being a godsend for the rural handicapped.
