Wheelchair for Babies

James Galloway and Sunil Agrawal from the University of Delaware have created this robot wheelchair for kids from the ages of 6 months to 3 years.  This is the first self-powered wheelchair for babies that I have ever heard of.  The purpose is to give babies with disabilities (spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, etc) the chance to explore environments and learn just as much as a healthy baby can.

I think it must be said that these kids are going to be AWESOME at video games!
