      Looks like this accident has found a place to happen. How far did it roll and how many people did it take out when powered up?

      Actually, it didn’t move, and nobody died. Amazing, huh? Especially since I was involved!

      Sensored motor and controller… it started the thing so smoothly I almost didn’t notice. Minimum speed was something obscenely low like 30RPM.
