Sit and swivel

4 Comments

If hitting the half-pipes at the skate park just makes you feel in need of a sit-down nowadays, help is at hand. Produced by a skateboarding workshop in Aichi Prefecture, the “Rolling Foot” lets you sit and skate. Billed as a way for board-phobes to deal with their anxiety, this skateboard-cum-seating device clocks in at 52,800 yen, a price sure to make some weak in the knees.

Using a mind-bending new propulsion technique, the chair is operated by sitting down and pushing at the ground in the opposite direction with your feet. You can turn by shifting your weight and there is even a footbrake, for those whose nerves remain uncomforted. The magnificent Rolling Foot is made to order, so allow for a two-week production time.

When I am sitting it is often for ANOTHER reason as nature is also different to calling upon us humans for some specific reasons in life.
