Crazy chair car goes on show

The I-Real - a single-seater car that looks like an armchair


This might look like a chair for chilling in, but it's actually a car!

The I-Real has buttons and controls on the arms and appears a bit like a futuristic wheelchair.

Drivers can change the seat's position so you can lie back and go faster on the road or sit up and go at a slower pace on the pavement.

The single-seater car can go up to 18 miles an hour (30kph) and is on show at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan with other wacky vehicles.
