    Well, I actually thought about trying different things. MIT just made a new motor thats about the size of a quarter. They havent released it because until they can make them all run the exact same way at the same time, they won't.

    I put the motor idea on hold for now because I figure I can figure that out later.But... a motor heats up. The more heat, the more breakdown. So the wheels would have to be vented to release any exhaust and allow air cooling unless you somehow create a liquid cooling system to make it more efficient. Of course, this would cost more too.

    The suspension, which it seems like alot of people forgot about, (how else do they jump so high and land from astronomical heights?) my friend who does aggressive inline for real has jumped off of a roof top and landed it. Granted he said his feet felt like they exploded, but still. It's possible. So, for the suspension, I found out they have 2-wheel frames with shock absorbers. Kaiser makes them. I figure an improvement would be to try to find special rated actuators like on the trunks and hatches of some cars or screen doors, to handle the weight and assumed pressure from a 10-20ft fall with a 100-200lb person. You put two into the skate, both starting at the center and going to just behind the wheel since it is a 2 wheel frame. I'm talking so it makes a ^ shape. So the suspension is done.

    As for the physics of it all, that would be up to the person. Yes, a fast rate of acceleration at any extreme end would cause you to flip. Think see-saw or plane propeller. You would have to have a strong body and excellent control to start out. You would then have to keep that posture making small adjustments as you go and you'd have to make sure the skates themselves dont get ahead of you. In other words, a very talented athlete.
    great point about venting out the motor. That seriously would probably big the only real problem with developing these. The suspension i believe is doable. A strong spring, or some kind of design to disperse the impact energy. Not too unrealistic at all, just like you said the hardest thing is keeping the motor cool. Since if you think about it, it will be super hot. A small motor producing a good amount of power, let's say...10+ horsepower, it will heat up FAST. Just the cooling part is the big issue.

    especially if they're fat, then the motor would have to work double time. XD

    id rather walk then, im betting those would be pretty pricey, like those stupid 2wheeler walking thing, the one that you stand on.

    I very much doubt those motors could provide enough torque to power a human.

    They wouldn't be able to jump that high or land from that height. Not with such tiny springs, and lets not forget that all thre shock has to go through the wheels first.

    I dont think they would provide that much torque im just saying the technology is within reach. How much has the capacity of hard drives, jump drives, and memory sticks increased in the past 10 years?

    And yes the shock has to go through the wheels and like I said before, air pressure actuators like on screen doors or hatches on cars would work great if you can find one small enough and rated for that kind of thing. It would allow you to jump higher and maybe a bit farther. It would also allow you to land from a greater height with no problem.

    as for the motor, they have smallest "motor" in the world developed that has crazy amount of potential.

    "The motor works by shuffling atoms between two molten metal droplets in a carbon nanotube."

    "Although the amount of energy produced is small -- 20 microwatts -- it is quite impressive in relation to the tiny scale of the motor. The whole setup is less than 200 nanometers on a side, or hundreds of times smaller than the width of a human hair. If it could be scaled up to the size of an automobile engine, it would be 100 million times more powerful than a Toyota Camry’s 225 horsepower V6 engine, the researchers say."

    so put into perspective...make that into the size of let's sat a quarter and they should be OUTRAGEOUS power for the weight of a person.

    as for the suspension and springs, instead of just using one or two big springs, use a bunch of smaller ones to help disperse the impact. Also since there's already so much technology involved, to increase your jump height and distance, i believe it can be done easily too. The use of hydraulics. How to use it? With the use of the pressure sensitive sensors. Say if you want to jump, you have to put a lot of force down, exactly like when you do jump.

    concerning about this thread:::

    dnt hurt urself. AT's only work in japan. ive tried it myself, i had to get a plane ticket frm miami,FL to japan. wrks perfectly fine. send me a PM for my blueprints. only comes in pink and blue btw.

    Yes we all know the only place they could ever exist in peace is in Japan. Why do you think we don't have gundams in america? or Evas? That is why I'm going to try and teach English in Japan haha
