Robotic Wheelchair Follows Around Unsuspecting “Companions”

The Robotic Wheelchair designed by Saitama University‘s Human-Robot Interaction Center is programmed to automatically follow a human companion, using a built-in sensor and camera system which automatically detects the companions shoulders. The Wheelchair is also capable of avoiding obstacles, such as other oncoming humans.

Until the day it is legal to harvest humans for personal slavery, this Robotic Wheelchair will be forced to choose “companions” at random, following them until they build-up the gumption to politely ask the nice little handicapped person to stop riding their ass before they break the other leg. That is if you can make it far enough without the sensors picking up someone’s shoulders in a moving vehicle.
