An unusual personal comfort accessory, the Roo provides the multifunctionality of a tail recliner / headlight visor in a backpack-style unit.

Worn in low position it is a reclining aid allowing the user to take weight off their legs and relax while standing. In high position the dual powerful headlight beams mounted on the device light-up dark zones.

The operation is efforless thanks to a powerful 12V motor. Additionally a luggage compartment can be loaded with day-trip essemtials.
