Powerisers jumping stilts

Iím sorry, but these are just plain CRAZY! The images from the movie Aliens keeps coming up in my head. At the same time, it looks WAY cool. Just imagine, you now can leap up to almost 6 feet high and be able to run up to 20 miles an hour without having to grow wings.

By using curved springs attached to the base, the weight that you push down creates a gravitational energy. The super-charged springs then push everything back. By harnessing this force, it gives you the power to run and leap, ultimately reaching tremendous height and speed.

They come in silver, blue, red or yellow, and are adjustable to fit. Priced at £199 each, itís not exactly cheap, but sure looks like a lot of fun. You can take a look at these video clips from YouTube.com and see how other crazy folks try to do it. Don't forget to wear protection, people!
