Rolling Superman Simulator
by Mark R
I remember I was at some fair, and they had this metal ball thing that people put me in with straps, and then my friends, including my daughter, rolled me.
This looks like nearly the same concept as the Rolling Superman Simulator. There is no rolling upside down on this, but the user’s own weight keeps them level as they roll across the ground.
Okay, does anyone else think that this looks dangerous? This looks like something that Wile E. Coyote would use to catch a roadrunner, only to have his poor self dragged through the canyon.
I also don’t think that you can call this a Superman Simulator because doesn’t Clark usually fly a little higher than 3 feet off of the ground? Maybe this is made for Smallville‘s Clark Kent, who, for some odd reason, still hasn’t flown in his nine season series of adventures.
Yeah, this is one of those DIY gadgets, and one of those where the kid really wants to try it out, while the parent would want to keep the tykes out of the thing altogether. At least the kid in this photo is wearing gloves so his hands don’t drag on the ground and get “pavement-burn”. I wonder if he is using his hands to guide him along.
