A lot of people mod their cars as a hobby. But have you ever heard someone modding wheelchairs? If you haven't, then you're about to now. They aren't exactly modded for fun, but they're modded for a good reason and for a worthwhile purpose.

People with disabilities have a tough enough time as things are. Wheelchairs help them get around the house and other indoor places, but they can't exactly ride those things outside because they just weren't made for the outdoors. Except for the Tank Chair, that is.

This badass chair was designed by TC Mobility with full mobility in mind, including trails and other paths outdoors. This off-road, all-weather chair can "conquers streams, mud, snow, sand, and gravel" so its owner can get out and enjoy the great outdoors once again. It's built with a rubber track and high-torque electric motors, making it strong and sturdy even while you're traveling on a rocky path.

Hit 'play' on the player above to see the Tank Chair in action. Awesome, ain't it?
