This is a 44-pound wheelchair built by Simon Burfield entirely out of LEGO pieces (sans the wheels). Specifically, 'six Lego Mindstorms NXTs, 12 Mindstorms motors, 12 Lego Mindstorms touch sensors...and a "whole load of Lego Technic."' The chair can allegedly accommodate an occupant up to 198-lb and zoom them around at speeds up to incredibly slow. Still, an impressive feat. Of course, if you find yourself crippled and insurance won't cover the cost of a Rascal or Hoveround I don't recommend going and building your own LEGO version. No, here's what you do: call me and I'll steal one from somebody who's just fat and lazy. Mother Teresa they call me in my neighborhood. "No they don't." THEY CALL ME NANCY BOY, OKAY?

Hit the jump for a lady in tight jeans taking the thing for a spin.
