Walking "Wheelchair"

A biped robot WL-16RIII carrying a student descends a flight of stairs during a demonstration at the campus of Waseda University in Tokyo on April 26, 2006. The world's first biped walking robot capable of carrying a person was developed by the university's mechanical engineering department and Tmsuk Co. Ltd. The robot is equipped with a joy stick-like controller for the driver to control the movement, direction and speed like a vehicle. (Reuters)
