It's not as sexy as all the fighter jets and super cars here, but for me (missing a leg) this has been a life changer, allowing me (and my camera) to get to many places that were inaccessible to me previously. It is a modified Segway. The rear handle deploys and retracts the outriggers, which also toggle it on and off from standby mode, and the front handle steers. Then it's lean forward or backward to move! :cool:

Those are some serious off road tires on it! Looks like it could use some pin striping, though. ; )
