Charles Xavier never really been â€˜steamyâ€™ but this superbly detailed steampunk wheelchairÂ begs to differ. Â The pseudo-Victorian mechanical recreation of Professor Xâ€™s iconic wheelchair would make both Jules Vern and Stan Lee very proud.
Built from an Eastlake Victorian platform rocker from about 1875, the chair has been reframed and reupholstered to give it its beautiful looks.Â Added features include pistons from a 1930â€™s iron works that move along with the wheels and liquid storage in the back holds enough vodka and cranberry juice (pumped through ice!) to make Professor X stand up and dance
The chair is fully drivable with steering, throttle and LED light battery indicator to alert you to when itâ€™s time to go back to the Xavier Institute and recharge (maybe on some of that vodka/cran).Â Â The sound system is built into the chair frame with 30 digitally amped watts into 2 car speakers and special 5â€ micro sub woofer which all makes the MP3 player attached echo louder then Banshee.Â The best part?Â The steam billowing out of the stack on the back, truly a wonder of Steampunk modification!
