Be like a grasshopper: compressed air jump exoskeleton for legs.
Ever walked on your favorite path, just to realize that it has been blocked by a 2 meter fence? No problem:
The exoskeleton releases the kinetic energy as you activate it by your jumping movement, and absorbs it back into potential energy as you land. Micropumps in your shoes recharges the lost energy
as you walk.

||When I first saw the ads for Nike Air shoes I expected
they would do something like this when you wore
them. I went out and bought a pair. They were a
failure, in practical terms... overpromised and
||So -- an opportunity for Nike to set things straight?
||That would require a lot more lateral support than
their shoes normally offer. They're not very stable,
or good for your feet. Ask your podiatrist.
||Now I got it: one should market them as wearable trampolines, although it is a bit different idea than that of a wearable trampoline.
||//wearable trampolines// In which case, how are
these not just bocks? The idea of accumulating
energy between jumps is the novelty here.
