Tank Chair PWNS Powerchair, Hover Round

January 9, 2008


If you're anything like me you're drunk at 11 am and watching The Price Is Right like any normal person in their right mind. And if you are even more like me you get annoyed by all those damn Powerchair and Hover Round commercials with the geriatrics speeding around like bats out of hell on their motorized death traps. Well now there is an electric chair to beat all chairs -- the Tank Chair Mk II.

"Boasting a top speed of 5 mph, the Tank Chair Mk II has 24V, 2HP, 127RPM variable speed motor that gets its juice from four Optima Deep Cycle batteries. Its creator claims that the chair can even outpace a golf cart." Wait, wait, wait -- 5MPH, what the hell? I figured the thing would at least be good for 15-20MPH. Maybe if the Mk II ($15,000) sells well they'll up the ante. Because I can't very well mount a submachine gun and paint flames on something that only goes 5MPH. I'd be the laughing stock of the neighborhood. Which I kind of already am for parking my car in the neighbor's pool one night. I told him I was testing a new submarine car for the government, but he called the police anyways.
