This Wheelchair-Accessible Snowmobile Is Awesome

by Conner Flynn

How often do you see wheelchair-accessible sports vehicles? That’s why this concept is so amazing. Bruce Thomson is an industrial design professor at Humber College in Toronto. He challenged his senior students to design a distinctively Canadian vehicle. And thus, the Talini was born.

Dimitri Timtchenko met the challenge by designing this impressive snowmobile. In Canada, if you live in the far North, snowmobiles are used for daily transportation, not just recreation. What do you do if you live there and are disabled? Well, mostly you are out of luck if you need to get around in the snow. Not so with Timtchenko’s design, which provides an enclosed compartment where a wheelchair-bound pilot can wheel right into the cockpit and start driving. It’s a really ingenious design, and maybe someday it will actually be produced.
