Transformers: Stairs That Turn Into Wheelchair Access Elevators

November 30, 2018

This is a video highlighting several examples of Sesame Access's wheelchair access elevators, which magically appear out of stairs with the push of the elevator's call button. The concept originated to provide wheelchair access to buildings while preserving their original design. Sure, whatever works. I mean it might not be as an ingenious solution as the one I came up with, but now what am I supposed to do with all these helium balloons?

Keep going for the whole video.

Thanks to Carmen, who agrees if we lived in the actual future and all wheelchairs with jetpacks attached, ramps and elevators would be obsolete.

    While I appreciate the engineering that went into it, is a ramp really that much of an issue?

  • Munihausen

    A simple inclined plane would be much more eco-friendly.

  • GeneralDisorder

    But... a simple inclined plane has a limit to how much it can rise over certain distances and therefore takes up extra space. It's not ideal.

    If I were a cripple I'd feel embarrassed every time I'd have to sit there while this slow ass transformer show rolled out in front me.

  • Bling Nye


    Yeah, I don't think anyone's gonna care dude.

    We're all in "the Good Place" now.

  • Bling Nye

    Goddamn if there ain't likely some fuckin' truth to that.
