Run Like An Animal With Bionic Boots

For 25 years, inventor Keahi Seymour has dreamed of running with the speed and loping gait of an animal. His inspiration struck at age 12, while he was watching a program about kangaroos. “The announcer said it moves at such an efficient gait by using its Achilles tendons as springs,” Seymour says. “I thought, ‘Why not replicate that in a device that could propel a human?’ ” He began sketching footwear using ostriches, which, he discovered, run more like humans, as his model.

The story is too old to be commented.
