Stride Augmentation Devices
With No Wheels

Airhoppers
The pneumatic tube on the back of the Airhopper Sport Shoe contracts like a muscle, sending you sky-high -- or at least a few feet. Another item that's literally popping out of industrial labs is Festo's Airhopper sport shoe. This German manufacturer usually creates devices that only an engineer could love -- pneumatic tubes and other components for assembly lines. But someone forgot to give the design department their medication, and out came a shoe that'll make you bounce like a superhero. The pneumatic tube on the back powers the Airhopper. But even with their aluminum frames, the Airhoppers weigh close to 50 pounds. John B. Carnett

    Bijingo Jumping Boots Boots
    Springs under the soles of the shoes. Looks like a highpowered version of the Nike Nike Shox basketball shoe.

    Poweriser
    Bionic leg stilts Strap a pair of these on and jump 6 feet in the air and take 9 foot running strides! They basically add a huge Achilles Tendon to your leg...every time you take a stride/jump you store more energy in the spring -- launching you further each time. Just like gaining more and more height on a trampoline.
