The Zenith wheelchair , a design by the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Alberta, is fit with tank-like treads to climb up stairs under the user’s own power. The treaded design combines with strong, lightweight tech like an aluminum back frame and a Herman Miller-inspired carbon fiber seat to create a beastly machine that’s not too cumbersome to actually wield.

And why the heck is Johnny 5 receiving better medical care than the citizens of humanity

I don’t know who has the pockets and the space to install Hydrofloors—mechanically operated tiles that sink into the ground slowly, revealing a swimming pool already full of water—but I want to meet them. Watch them in action: According to the manufacturer, the system is “nearly invisible” and you can adjust the depth of the swimming pool to any depth just by using a control panel. I wonder if my downstairs neighbor will mind it if I install one
