A giant bouncy ball, hollow, with a door to get in and out. Inside is a chair strapped in with elastic on the corners and a seat belt, of course. Mounted in a launch pad of giant elastic straps, the passenger flings himself high into the air, roughly in the direction of where he wants to go. With a little
luck, they might even get there.
Wasn't sure what catagory to put this in.

||With practice, you could even arrange "combination shots", where you could nudge several passengers to their destinations with just one launch off the pad.
||If your destination is uphill, you'd just
roll back home before you get there. Or
try getting back again from downhill
destinations. You must live in a flat
||I saw this on Guiness book of world recrods, it believe it's called "zoorbing"
||this would be fantastic if linked to my ginormous swing ball!! <link>
||There's a difference between this and the Zorb - the Zorb isn't designed to be launched.
||That's why this is cooler.
||Even though the zorb is neat, I don't think the hole is big enough to squeeze through.
