These are being called the world’s fastest shoes. Meet the Moonwalkers. They look like roller skates but they’re not.
You strap them to any shoes and they give you a boost while you walk with a 300-watt electric motor that powers eight wheels per foot. They say that you don’t have to balance or propel yourself. You just walk and they increase your walking speed by 250%. I’m very interested.
You can’t buy these yet. They’re still a Kickstarter project. They say that this is perfect for situations like walking through an airport when you need to go fast. That only works if idiots don’t step in front of you or slow down in front of you with their wheely bags.
