Inspired by his friend’s couch on wheels, William Keller built this motorized La-Z-Boy to get around the Playa at Burning Man. It’s controlled by a modded video game controller and driven by an electric motor. Kids and adults alike are delighted by the moving recliner as it zooms around the grounds of Maker Faire Bay Area 2011.
