Exmovere Holdings’ Chariot Makes Humans Look Like R2-D2

chariot-2
For anyone that has seen how a distribution center works, you will notice that there are managers zipping to-and-fro the warehouses in chariot-like transportation gadgets. Exmovere Holdings has taken a similar concept but actually attached it to the human body. Riding around on Segways and chariots without it being physically attached to you is old school!

The Exmovere Chariot is controlled by subtle movements made by the hips and lower torso. There are sensors inside the shell which predicts the direction you would like to go based on the body movement. The Exmovere Chariot is powered by batteries and can go up to 12MPH.

And if you get too tired of standing in the Exmovere Chariot, the company is developing a way to switch to a seated position.

Check out a couple more pics after the jump:

    This is how heart attacks are fostered.

  2. Kyle says:

    I thought this was for amputees, and that would be great, but now that I see that it’s not it seems worthless. Also, is that a speaker on the front?

  3. Tim says:

    Its so you can bump hot beats as you roll through your hood

  4. zack says:

    Pathetic. Instead of the normal looking business guy they should have had an extremely obese person in it because that’s what it will help promote.

  5. Bundy says:

    I see one flaw with this design. The waist isn’t big enough for the 68″ lards that will want them the most, like the people that use the “courtesy carts” at the Hell-Mart. The people thin enough to use this are the ones that take care of themselves so they don’t need or want one of these.

    Part man, part electric shaver!

  7. Wesley says:

    FAKE! For so many reasons.

    1) Like above no skinny person will use this
    2) In all the pictures the back ground is bare of life
    3) Look at the wheels imagine trying to turn left or right ( I know it would be poss with some fancy engineering but plz)

  8. Amit Chowdhry says:

    Its real. The company sent out a press release about it too.

  9. Elroc says:

    What do you do if you drop your pen?

  10. T-Rock says:

    Just buy a new one. I’m sure if you have one of these you could probably just toss your pen every time you use it. Then run them over for good measure.

  11. Arnold Darskshner says:

    1) Like above no skinny person will use this
    Notice the black part, it looks clearly adjustable. And people the size of boats cant really use segways, either.

    2) In all the pictures the back ground is bare of life
    Because its a photoshoot, dumbass

    3) Look at the wheels imagine trying to turn left or right ( I know it would be poss with some fancy engineering but plz)
    Have you ever even seen a segway?

  12. Dwaxe says:

    Turning left and right is solved by moving on wheel in one direction and another in the opposite.

    If you cannot figure that out, you are hopeless.

  13. Litz says:

    Do I have to wear pants when using it?
    And can you include a toilet in there?

  14. lovesick says:

    With proper adjustments, it would be rather empowering for disabled people. I,d like to see more information on that aspect. I read it will be able to move to a seating position too. So if you drop your pen, I guess you are in the same position as in a wheel chair.

  15. Videoranger Commander says:

    While the device is real, the listed use is totally false and these promo pictures are a lie. What this is is the lower half of this robot showman suit:

    Engadget has already posted a correction.

    personaly it looks like a large vacume cleaner, put a blower moter and a dust bag inside and let the handicaped people in the office vacume the building while they go about their daily routine.
    LOL

  17. Craig Esty says:

    I have secondary progressive ms and work everyday and use a scooter.
    I live in Falls Church and would volunteer some time to test for you.

  18. DarkfireSG says:

    thats disgusting

  19. WhySoSerious says:

    For so much money couldnt they put a rack for his briefcase?
