Segway of wheelchairs

The Whill Type-A chair is what happens when former Toyota and Nissan engineers get together with a couple of executives from Sony!  The Whill Type-A device has all direction four-wheel-drive, a range of 10.6 miles at speeds of up to 5.5 mph and is connected to a smartphone app via Bluetooth that sets the sensitivity of the controller, maximum speed and acceleration.   This is a great example of  creating products for an aging population that has money and is comfortable with technology–ride on!
