A 20-year-old summer intern at chip giant Intel has created an internet-connected wheelchair.
The wheelchair collects data to gather information to flag emergencies – for example when a user has slumped forward.
It can also monitor that the chair itself is functioning properly.

Developers can also use the information to make apps which will enhance a wheelchair user’s experience.
