This radical new wheelchair design will revolutionize the way visually impaired people see their environments.
Developed in Sweden at the Luleå University of Technology, this cutting-edge chair is set to hit the marketplace as soon as possible. Luleå University's laser wheelchair is structurally the same as traditional chairs, with sturdy wheels and a durable leather seat.
However, this chair's technology enables it to surpass all of its cushy competitors. Luleå University's laser wheelchair has a small laser scanner on a post above the seat. This laser scans the environment in front of the chair as it moves, and quickly creates virtual 3D maps, which are sent to the user on a handheld interface. The user can then manually read the map and navigate around obstacles in front of them.
Luleå University's laser wheelchair is a technological masterpiece with a powerful purpose.
