The Electric Sphere : Event Shuttle Vehicle : Even Park Bench

The Sphere, or Spherical Cubical Arc Reactor is a slightly odd globe like SEV, or spherical electric vehicle used to bring smiles at events, trade shows and the like. Created at Tinkersmiths Makerspace which is located at the IX Art Park in Charlottesville Virginia. The Art Park is well known in the city of cVille as a place for the eclectic to hang out, watch a concert or engage in the numerous types of events which occur there almost daily. The Arc Reactor was a vehicle built on an up-cycled electric wheel chair base which would seat up to six adults. Amazingly would move that amount of weight around with ease. The sphere has six swing arms with little wheels that kept the unit from falling over, or to say stay level with the terrain. It would run about four hours on a full charge. Here are a few videos, for images and more SEV information
