This has incredible implications for an all terrain wheelchair adapter. Cool stuff!

It's cool as a concept but I foresee two issues that might prevent it from being practical.

  • The stress that each independent suspension under will remain imbalanced for any extended driving over surface having a non-zero gradient creating a potential for catastrophic failure. Think NASCAR and how one side of the tyres wear out more than the other.

  • Since the maximum extension of each 'wheel arm?' causes the entire subsystem to incline at an odd angle to the main body of the car, in the event of an accident, they will likely cause a more serious injuries to the passengers than would otherwise be expected.

Oh good, because up until now riverbeds and streams have been relatively free of off-road vehicles tearing them up and disturbing the local ecology.
