I'm not sure what it says about the entertainment industry, or me, that as soon as I saw this photo I immediately pictured agents, executives, and producers rolling down hallways or out of their offices to the valet stand in one.

Sure, the Chariot from Exmovere Holdings is designed for amputees and those who otherwise have trouble standing. But in a town where expending physical effort outside of the gym and without a physical trainer is generally a sign of weakness, it just could become the perfect status symbol. Reading documents and talking on the cell phone is a breeze when you don't need to move your legs to walk. Can't you just imagine a power producer rolling onto set in one of these babies, yelling at whoever needs to be yelled at, and rolling back to his or her car?

It'll be easy to differentiate between who's a worker and who's in charge based on who's got teh bottom half of a vaccuum cleaner over their legs. And of course you can bet color, power and speed will all make for subtle status differences even amongst the Hollywood elite.

Of course I'm totally joking. Even in Hollywood, nobody's that vain… right?
