Amazing Leaping Ability

I’m not sure what this says about me, but one of my favorite techie blogs lately has been Popgadget, which is all about “personal tech and innovative lifestyle for women.” Last week they featured one of the coolest gadgets I have seen in a long time — so cool in fact that they make the Segway look dorky. Well, I suppose the Segway makes the Segway look dorky. Anyway, according to Popgadget, Powerisers jumping stilts let you “leap up to almost 6 feet high and … run up to 20 miles an hour without having to grow wings.”

To really get a sense of what these things can do, though, you need to see them in action. Check out these videos of people doing flips down the street and hopping down stairs and jumping over cars on YouTube. Absolutely crazy. How could anyone not want a pair of these?

    Have you seen the ad on TV depicting a street scene, in which a bunch of people are using those things? They are amazing. If I were 20 or 30 years younger, I would definitely want to try them. At any age, though, they look like devices that could cause very serious injuries, especially to the novice user. I still want to try a Segway.

    What a blast! Yes, I want them, but my age and experience won’t let me see beyond the emergency room.
