Can’t afford a Tesla? Just hack grandma’s electric mobility scooter [video]

Want to give the octogenarians in your life a little something special this holiday season? Follow the example of these enterprising Hungarians who hacked an electric mobility scooter, giving it a lot more oomph.

Based on the title of the video embedded above, the scooter appears to top out at around 60mph, so Elon Musk and the Tesla crew probably don’t need to worry much (yet). Still, that’s more than enough speed to turn heads in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot, and really, isn’t that all anyone wants to do? They will probably need a spare scooter lithium battery or two if they are gonna keep doing that. Or there are loads of mobility scooters and wheelchairs for you to view on sites such as Scooters N Chairs, you can look at it and see that this site ships to lots of locations around the world, offering you accessibility to these great quality products for you to enjoy. People are, after all, finding many more ways to move around with disabilities these days, be they temporary issues or permanent challenges. It is vital that if you are in this situation you are comfortable and able to do as much as you can independently. Having the right mobility option is very important, but so is the ability to spare those for people who need them. These scooters could make a great alternative travel option around towns and cities for people who don’t want to get a car. It will be interesting to see how this develops.
