Remote Controlled Granny Does Her Own Stunt Work
July 17th, 2008
When somebody says to me that they’ve got a new radio controlled vehicle for me to look at, I usually think of cars, trucks, helicopters or maybe even a tank. The last thing to pop into my mind is someone’s grandma strapped to a wheelchair. But what’s to say that I’ve always gotta be right?
Stunt Granny is a remote-controlled little old lady, strapped to a miniature motorized wheelchair. (You’ve gotta love the flame job on the sides, no?) The remote uses a joystick controller to steer her through a variety of obstacles, and offers a handy “Turbo” button for when gran needs to make a speedy getaway.
Packed right in the box are a number of props for the chair’s octogenarian occupant to navigate through, including a tiny wheelchair ramp for jumps, and a bunch of little grocery store items for you to knock over as you direct her through her death-defying feats a la Evel Knieval (who would be just about as old if he were still with us).
So what are you waiting for? You can get your hands on your own little daredevil senior citizen over on WowZZers for about $25.
