Lush!!: Professor X's Steampunk Wheelchair Has Functional Cranberry & Vodka Dispenser

March 9, 2010


Actually, it'll dispense any liquid, Daniel Valdez just fills it with cranberry and vodka because, hey, the man likes girly drinks. Me? I'll stick to bourbon and motor oil. Huh? NO I'M NOT A ROBOT YOU JACKASS. I just like the way it tastes. Plus it makes my pee thick and black!

The Steampunk Professor Xavier Wheelchair by Daniel Valdez was made from a Victorian rocker from 1875, a Permobil C300 powered wheelchair, some pistons from a steelworks, an Arduino-based audio kit, and a drinks dispenser. You know, for the vodka and cranberry juice.

There's a video after the jump that you really need to watch to fully appreciate the machine, along with a link to Daniel's Flickr with a ton more pics of him hanging out with the Victorian X-Men. I've got to admit he did a hell of a job, and I may or may yes be stealing it before Halloween. AND NONE OF THAT FUNNY TELEPATHIC BUSINESS EITHER. You think I won't break your arms too? I'll do it.

Hit the jump for one more shot, the video and another link to Daniel's Flickr gallery.

Thanks to Gangler and Angel Mass, who, okay we're gonna need tin-foil helmets so his mutant brain powers won't affect us. And double layered just to be on the safe side.
