Japan's Chiba Institute of Technology associate professor Shuro Nakajima demonstrates how to use a robotic wheelchair called the 'RT-Mover' which enables a user to climb 25cm gaps and move in omni-directions, at a demonstration during the Japan Robot Week exhibition in Tokyo on October 17, 2012. The wheelchair, which operates at a maximum speed of 5.4kph, can move over uneven ground covering gaps of a maximum of 25 cm (10 inches) while the user keeps level at all times.
