Rollkers, lightweight undershoes that allow you to walk at speeds of 12 kilometres an hour, are among the more unusual products on display at Geneva’s 41st annual exhibition of inventions, which began on Wednesday.
To accelerate you simply push the tip of the foot, the product’s backers say on their website.
To brake, you “tighten the toe on the ground” and “no loss of balance” is promised by the inventor, who like many of the exhibitors is seeking investors to expand development of the product.
From Hong Kong there is a portable “Solsource” solar cooker, a contraption that harnesses the sun’s rays to allow for meals to be heated up in a “safe and efficient” way.
12 km/h eh?
