It looks great, yao. He might have more control if the front wheel were directly under the steering pole. Other than that, it looks like fun. I’d like to take it for a spin.

I believe it was well thought out! the wheel casters to automatically go straight and when rounding a corner follows the weight distribution so it is less tippy. GREAT!

yao, wouldn’t it be cool if you made a mechanism that would power the wheels when he swung the hand controls ? It may require elbow rests for stability.

That’s a great looking project and a wonderful design. He sure looks like he’s enjoying it.
