Utah college students invent motorized couch

July 25, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Two Brigham Young University students have given new meaning to the term "couch potato." Nick Homer and Rob Clark came up with the idea for a drivable couch years ago when they were in high school.

But it wasn't until recently that their invention came to life.

The students said they used the motor from an old wheelchair to create the drivable couch.

It seems not everyone is thrilled about the new invention. In fact, the university has already banned it.
