Give your couch motorized wheels and leave home without having to get off it!

Self-professed professional builder Nick Homer, who took his couch out to the streets on a Halloween night for the first time some years ago, has not stopped helping people to build their own couch-on-wheels since. Apparently all that’s needed is a used motorized wheelchair with functioning batteries and a couch that can be mounted to the wheelchair.

The video is hilarious. Clearly this isn’t the sort of thing you find on Instructables, though we located a fairly complicated tutorial to make a ‘Tall Amphibious Couchbike‘.
