UK-based IT developer and LEGO fanatic, Simon Burfield, has claimed to have built the world’s first motorized LEGO wheelchair—capable of carrying a person weighing up to 200 pounds.

According to his website, he said that the wheelchair uses six LEGO Mindstorms NXT’s for moving and one master NXT to control its direction.

It is powered by 14 LEGO mindstorms motors and moves on 12 Rotacaster multi-directional wheels.

He also said that this is only a prototype and he will be updating his site once it has been perfected.

Other than his LEGO wheelchair, Burfield also creates other nifty LEGO robots and mechanics.
