When we first heard about WHILL, our jaws dropped open in disbelief – finally, a wheelchair that not only offers those in need mobility but a super cool aesthetic. Japanese firm WHILL debuted their solution for mobility at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2011 with a device that attaches to a standard wheelchair to convert it into a motorized vehicle. The unit resembles an oversized set of headphones – each headphone disc fits over a standard wheelchair wheel, providing a safety bar across the lap of users. Powered by a lithium battery, the unit fuels a motor that powers the wheels up to a speed of 20km per hour. On a full charge, the battery has a range of approximately 30 ams. Not too shabby! At this point in time, WHILL is looking for users to test the device before it is given a green light on production.
