Wearable "chariot" offer hope for amputees and mobility challenged

I first posted this story on my science news blog. This invention offers great hope for amputees and people who have mobility issues. They would be able to move around in an upright position. And it looks very cool. Hopefully, this product will be available soon.

Wearable 'chariot' provides mobility
MCLEAN, Va., April 10 (UPI) -- The Chariot, a wearable concept vehicle designed for use by amputees, was introduced this week in Virginia by Exmovere Holdings.

The device is described as a self-balancing, hands free vehicle designed to provide amputees and others who have difficulty standing added mobility. The Chariot comes up to the wearer's waist and control is managed through movements of the lower torso and hips.
