This tense “walking simulator” from Kotake Create drops players into a seemingly-endless subway, where they must wander its tiled hallways to find a way out. The game’s instructions read simply: Don’t overlook any anomalies; If you find anomalies, turn back immediately; If you don’t find anomalies, do not turn back; To go out from Exit 8.
In 2011, Vagabond Works created a skateboard like no other. The Land Crawler eXXtreme is a robotic skateboard that walks using a mechanism based on Theo Janssen’s Strandbeests. It uses two motors and 24 legs to scurry along and has a load capacity of 300 kg or about 661 lb. We imagine its battery doesn’t last long.
There are many faster ways to get around than walking, but Shift Robotics wants to improve that too. Their Moonwalkers shoes let you walk naturally while increasing your speed up to 250%. They’re far beyond ordinary roller skates, with the smarts to move with your gait and to stop naturally. You can even climb stairs in them.
After seeing footage of a rare 1980s model from Bandai Japan, JK Brickworks wanted to see if he could replicate its unique walking mechanism using LEGO parts. The unusual vehicle has a motorized trolley at its center which drives along the inside of a loop, causing it to continuously flip over and walk forward.
It’s hard enough to hold your breath underwater for a long time, let alone walk while you’re doing it. Freediver Boris Milosic set the Guinness World Record for the feat, walking back and forth along the bottom of a pool while wearing a weighted belt. He walked for almost 4 minutes and covered 315 feet on a single breath.
