Caption: Robotic wheelchair. Time-exposure image of researcher Joseph Spano testing a robotic ball-wheelchair. This chair uses spheres instead of wheels, and automatically compensates for the movements of its user by adjusting the position of its spheres. This is known as autonomous-control technology. Spano works in the laboratory of Harry Asada, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, USA.
