Bionic Boots

This video is of a pair of pneumatic boots that can elevate a person 3 feet. Not quite ready for walking in yet. But this idea has potential.

Reminds me of the Power boots, or rocket boots, which have a springgaaction. Some of them use a single combustion chamber that is fueled with diesel fuel to launch a person as they are running. So each of there steps are a few feet more apart, allowing the person to run much faster and further than with no running assist device.

Film Maker's video description:

These are pneumatic boots that I made to make myself taller. They raise you from 6 inches to 3 feet off the ground by toggling the belt-mounted controller. Enjoy! --Reuben rdbrewer@stanford.edu
