It would be nearly impossible to drive down the road and conceal the fact you're getting a road hummer.

Awesome! Yet another vehicle that's supposed to get me excited about saving the environment.

On the plus side, when I get turned into a greasy spot by the first sub-compact that runs a red (nevermind a real vehicle), that should greatly reduce my carbon footprint.

Enough with the coffin-mobiles already.

If my choices are that and a segway, that wins in a fucking landslide.

The fat get fatter.I don't think they would even fit in that chair. No offense intended to those that fall in that category.

Actually this is a pretty ingenious concept. It may seem pointless at first to some, but it takes very little stretch of the imagination to see how useful it can be.

Obviously it is much better than any power wheel chair any of us have seen, or one of those stupid fucking "rascals". If I were forced to use a chair for my mobility, I would happily shell out the $7000-8000 required.

What seems like a much better use for it is obviously large cities. You have to remember not all cities are built like our sprawling US metropolis' and worse yet, our midwest mega-towns. Places like Rome, or London, or Paris are 'walking' cities. You can walk from your house/apartment to the majority of places you need to get, this is where the I-real would be beneficial, especially for the elderly. The cities have smaller, narrower streets and lanes, or avenues that are used for foot traffic.

I read an essay once on NYC and their traffic problems/costs. They were discussing the idea of ripping up the streets and having them replaced with grass/trees/flowers and foot paths along the sides, and streets down the middle that would have taxi-like vehicles (the ones that stack like shopping carts that are free to use, and you just park them somewhere and another person takes them). This would be a way to cut back on maintenance as well as end the horrible congestion in certain parts of the city. A vehicle like the one in the video could be useful in cases such as that.

In the midwest it would obviously be difficult to use that on a daily basis if you had to get across KC, but then why would you buy it?

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

Plus, you can pretend that you're Charles Xavier moving about in a floating chair, and that computer that finds other I-Reals is Cerebro.

Unfortunately, its like EVERYONE has Magneato's helmet...

Cause I would totally manipulate chicks to give me random lap dances... In the I-Real.
