Poweriser
… literally! In the same vein as the pogo stick we previously covered, these powerisers look like a more versatile method of leaping tall buildings in a single bound.

They are attachments that clip on to normal shoes to give you that bio-augmented feel you’ve always wanted ever since you saw Steve Austin run in super-slow-motion :-)

Run at 20 MPH and leap 6 feet in the air – sounds like sci-fi and a few years ago it would have been but these things are available to buy now.

The downside is the upper weight limit – 90 kilos? Come on guys, what sort of pizza-loving geek is going to make that? Oh… right… suddenly I see the point. Well they’re still cool even if I can’t actually use them!

If you’re in the UK and you weigh less than me you can pick up a pair at www.boysstuff.co.uk or if Stateside give Amazon a seach.

I’ve just bought a pair of powerizers from poweriserstilts.com
. One thing I noticed on this site is that there are loads of different names for powerisers, like powerskips and velocity stilts. Does anyone know what the difference between them is as the site just lists the names, but doesn’t tell you anymore information about them. I hope I’ve bought the best pair!
