This is unbelievably rad!!! I can see how this would be a major gamechanger for paraplegics and quadriplegics alike. Even though I have full use of my extremities, I would also really like to spend a day cruising around on an Ogo 😉

I hope they do a kickstarter/indiegogo or something. I'd plop down $100 just to support the cause let alone expect to get one at under $10k. eventual patent trolls can go f&$% themselves cus this deserves to see the light of day and the ass of every single wheelchair bound individual out there.

@taylorhou Hi Taylor, thank you for your support! Here is a link to our Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. We need everyone's help to make the Ogo an affordable product :) https://www.indiegogo.com/projec...

Besides the speed and sleeker design, what differentiates the Ogo from the iBot wheelchair that also has a 2 wheel configuration?

@samuelcouch The Ogo is able to move completely hands free! Kevin has incorporated the side to side to side movements into the seat.

This really looks like the Baby Boomer chair for keeping active and independent. I hope you'll be able to take this to the next level.

Looks amazing and disruptive. How many hours of riding for a full battery charge? And what happens when the battery dies? Can you use it without battery?

@guycherni HI Guy, you will get up to 40km in a single charge. You get a lot of warning before the battery dies, but if you get stuck, the Ogo can move manually via the rims on the wheels :)
