If the NEWS concept wheelchair (or something like it) ever gets made, it will mean a much cheaper way for disabled people to get around with ease. Conventional motorized wheelchairs are few and far between simply because of the price point. This contraption offers a cheaper alternative while still providing electric mobility.
Designed by Ju Hyun Lee, the NEWS concept wheelchair is a device that simply clips on the the axels of your chair, giving it instant power. The gadget locks into the wheels and comes with a joystick for easy maneuverability.
