My sister recently emailed me an interesting photograph of what she wants for her next trike, something a wee bit more comfy, something that our 89 year old mom could also enjoy right along with her daughter. She would be upgrading from her TerraTrike Rover if she were to actually pursue this unique side-by-side tandem couch tricycle, however, this may be a one-off unit, so may be unavailable for purchase by the general public. Also, I suspect the weight of this recumbent trike might be significant, thus it would require two people simply to get around on flat smooth paved streets. Looks like the benefit of the comfort would be outweighed by the extreme effort to keep it moving. Although, if there is a downhill section of road, watch out … this thing might really get moving!

Note: This trike reminds me of a similarly designed side-by-side made by ICE a number of years ago, but their trike was more practical for most folks:
