Who's Jack Eadie?


I stumbled across this blog today (I know, I know; I'm blogging about a blog!) that features photos of concept wheelchairs designed by Jack Eadie. Who's Jack Eadie? I'm not sure. I found this bio of him online. It looks like he's a third-year university student in Australia who's designing an electric power wheelchair as part of his final year project. Anyway, you have to check out these chairs. They look cool, and they seem functional. The blogger describes them as "sorta a Segway/wheelchair hybrid." I'm not sure chairs like this will hit the market any time soon, but it's always neat to see how a pair of young eyes views a product that's been around for decades.
