This ‘Segway’ Type Wheelchair Is Awesome And Totally Hands-Free.

This is a new take on personal transportation

This new Segway type wheelchair is called the Ogo and was developed by a Kevin Halsall, a New Zealand engineer who invented this hands-free wheelchair for his best friend.  The Ogo wheelchair will give people a new way to engage with the world.

According to the youtube video:

Our team has blended cutting edge electronics and battery technology with an innovative intuitive hands free control system, to introduce a new era in personal transportation and freedom of movement for maximum independence.

A price is yet to be determined, but Mr Halsall hopes to keep them affordable and within the range of $10,000 – $20,000.
