Like it or not, everybody gets old, and rather than live with the status quo of nerdy old Hoveround or God forbid un-powered fold-up wheelchairs, here's an entry from Japan that's both visually interesting (well, as much as possible, we're talking about tarted-up wheelchairs) and has improved ergonomics.
The Rodem M-1 can be easily approached with a forward facing high-mounted seat, which is apparently easier to get into than a traditional chair, and once moving gets up to a scalding 2 MPH and lasts four hours on a charge. The wheeled jet ski looks set it apart from it's competition more than anything and should prove a solid basis upon which aging grease monkeys will ply their trade. Prices start at $5,300 to $7,500, but that won't take into account hopped up batteries, bigger motors, higher-powered controllers and the oh-so-important big-farad capacitors for those nitrous-like bursts of speed.
