Yeah. That just happened.

This shit is real !

The 7.5-foot slippers are each powered with a 36-volt system that uses six YellowTop 12-volt optimas. The two front wheels are driven by a 7-inch brushed DC motor from Advanced DC motors. There is a welded steel and plywood frame, covered with pink flokapi rugs that were sourced from Hollywood Love Rugs. Let's hope they weren't second-hand, eh? There is a caster wheel at the back for steering (apparently only fork-lift trucks use this system) and the driver sits on a tractor seat. Top speed is 15 mph.

Who wants a Segway when you can have a fuzzy bunny slipper. I can feel the wind in my hair already.
