Slow But Steady: This LEGO Motorized Wheelchair Actually Works!

Being confined to a wheelchair is a bummer. But while this LEGO wheelchair won’t necessarily take the frustration at having to use one away, it will make the entire thing a bit more bearable.

LEGO WheelchairThey say a positive attitude helps a lot with the healing process, so maybe this wheelchair is what most people need. At least, the ones who love LEGO, anyway.

This chair was built by master builder Simon “Burf” Burfield. It weighs 44 pounds, which isn’t heavy compared to most standard wheelchairs, and is downright lightweight compared to most motorized chairs. To build it, Burf used six Mindstorms NXTs, 12 Mindstorms motors, 12 Mindstorms touch sensors, 12 Rotacaster multi-directional wheels, and ‘a whole load’ of LEGO Technic.

See the chair in action in the video below:

Sure, it doesn’t move quickly, but it’s still impressive that it’s entirely built out of LEGO components.
