I know there have been days where I feel like not moving, usually I just scream from bed at my girlfriend, but now there is a solution for people like me. And that solution is the Hubo-FX-1, a wheel chair with legs! Imagine walking over 6 feet tall while in a sitting position towering over your coworkers and classmates.

Developed by KAIST ( Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) as a transportation device for the disabled as well as a platform for the military. The bot can carry a person weighing up-to 100kg the device itself weighs in at 150KG.

Unfortunately right now the bot requires external power to operate, there are however plans to make a battery powered version.
