Designed with the comfort level and problems of disabled people, the Tank Chair Mk II is a powerful wheelchair ready to roll in all kinds of weather and terrains. It was unveiled at CES 2008 in Las Vegas this week.

"This material used to design this rough-and-tough chair includes a one-piece steel chassis with the trails made from ruggedized rubber and lightweight aluminum struts," Elite Choice wrote.

"Claiming to run at a speed of 5 mph, the Tank Chair Mk II has 24V, 2HP, 127RPM variable speed motor that extracts its juice from four Optima Deep Cycle batteries. Its inventor asserts that the chair can even sideline a golf cart. This is a clear indication that now physically challenged people don't have to wait or think twice before going anywhere. It can be used over snow and during rainy season as well."

It will be available by the end of January and is priced at $15,000.
