Take a look down any Interstate at rush hour and you’ll discover that nearly every car on the road contains but one person. This not only causes unnecessary congestion, it also provides for plenty of pollution. Single-person transporation is the wave of the future, and while the Segway may be neat-o and all, this rollersuit looks like an absolute blast to use.
Jean-Yves Blondeau, known to some as Rollerman, dones a suit that is completely covered in 28 rollerblade-like wheels. As such, he can roll down the street in just about any position — “standing up, lying on his back, rolling on walls, rolling with one hand and one foot” — and at speeds as high as 60mph.
