    Chris, is this michael guy your own brother? IBOT is discontinued why advertising it?
    IBOT was a chunky, overpriced piece of technojunk. Segway RMP 400 can be modified to accept Challenger-like Gyroscoping chair and become a nice, safe, stairclimbing chair. Chalenget or AT 4×4 made in China already does that at much lower price.

    I’m surprised he needed it to be up on two wheels to be the right height to talk to Chris.

    It does a lot but it still relies on humans to drink beer.

    WOW! that truly is an innovative device! i am amazed, lol
    sucks that the person cannot walk, but heck this makes it just so much easier for disabled people to move around!

    Wow! That thing is amazing. If for some reason that I become disabled that is what I will get. Just wondering, is he disabled, or paralyzed, or does he just have that thing because they are so cool! (No disrespect intended.)

    Inverted Pendulum is the core technology of this and Segway. its a classic problem of control system theory, a field of electro-mechanics. all the two wheeled robot, as well as rocket launching stand before it blasts off to the space, are based on the same technology. control theory is not that old field of study though but being used and developed almost any field (from computer network traffic control to aerospace vehicle control to robotics balance control. but not all use inv. pendulum tho.

    I honestly love this. Especially the climbing stairs ability. One other thing that caught my eye, speaking of adaptive technologies, is a hack for someone who’s in a wheelchair to have a shopping cart follow them. I think I saw it on engadget a while back (probably last week?) I have a friend who paid about $30k or so for their chair, and while it has a raising ability, it wasn’t near as versatile and it sure as hell didn’t have a stair climbing feature. So, to have that for $6k cheaper…wow.
