    anyone know wher ei can get these, or at least a website to check these out. Ever since seeing them on Modern MArvels I have been fascinated with them. The funny thing is, on the show they said that they are working to be able to allow a person run at 25 mph without breaking a sweat, and i'm like "Holy fuck, those would be good for commuters!" sorry, just wondering where to find these

    Google "pogo boots". It looks like some are as cheap as $100, while others are as expensive as $500. And yes, it says you can go 20 MPH on them, although I wouldn't suggest it, unless you have protective equipment.

    Is it sad that all I could think about while they were flippin around is "I hope he falls."

    Anyway those things look pretty freaking entertaining.

    It looks like it's really easy to fall and break your neck.

    But, it does look like a ton of fun, I think I'd like to try something like this one day.

    I remember as a kid I had 2 pogo sticks and I loved those things a ton (still have one of them somewhere) I liked to jump around in the street, jump around the house, up and down the block, etc.

    It was a lot of fun.

    Those look like modified versions of the running limbs used for amputees.
