Nine months after the start of the project, the student team presents its first prototype ‘Scalevo’. The combination of tracks and large wheels provides an incredible driving experience. Afterwards, the video of the first prototype goes viral from one day to the other.

In only nine months the student team succeeds in completing and presenting its first prototype ‘Scalevo’.

Scalevo’ comes with two large wheels and tracks. The team thus introduces the first electric wheelchair that can balance independently and climb stairs.

At the end of the project, the team shoots an “advertising spot”, which they then post on YouTube. The video goes viral overnight. Check it out here!

The video shows further effects: In the little room at ETH Zurich, where the team is tinkering, the phone is running hot. It is time to answer questions about availability and prices. A first hint that the further development of this device would be worth it?
