LEGO Treadmill Challenge: Fun Under Foot

LEGO Treadmill Challenge: Fun Under Foot
Any parent of a LEGO fanatic will tell you there’s nothing worse than stepping barefoot on a pile, or even a single LEGO brick. The pain is excruciating. I’m pretty sure that Hell is nothing but a LEGO covered floor you have to walk on for all eternity. So the…

Puma BeatBot Robotic Pacer: Harder, Better, Faster, Bolter
In competitive running, pacers are hired runners who run at a pre-determined speed – and therefore time – so that the contestants can gauge their own pace or be motivated to run faster. To push its sponsored runners during training, Puma made Beatbot, a robotic pacer. You can think of…

Chainmaille Running Shoes: Armor for Your Feet

Chainmaille Running Shoes: Armor for Your Feet
PaleoBarefoot’s $265 PRONATIV chainmaille running shoes are not particularly stylish, but they should protect you from tiny swords and daggers should they be aimed at your feet. Apparently they are supposed to feel like you are running barefoot, but somehow I doubt that.…

Nike Flyknit Free & Free Hyperfeel Knitted Shoes: Running Shoes That Fit Like a Sock
When Nike first introduced Flyknit technology, it was pretty amazing.

VelociRoACH Hits the Ground Running… and Raid Won’t Stop It

VelociRoACH Hits the Ground Running… and Raid Won’t Stop It
Remember that Tom Selleck sci-fi flick called Runaway? Despite being terribly cheesy, those insect-like robots in that movie always gave me the creeps. Never mind that it was none other than KISS’ Gene Simmons who was the mastermind behind the robobugs. While this robotic insect isn’t deadly, you’ll have a…

X-rhex Robot Gets a Tail, Always Lands on Its Feet

X-rhex Robot Gets a Tail, Always Lands on Its Feet
The tiny Tailbot robot relies on a tail to control its balance. Now, the creators of the Tailbot and the RHex hexapod robot have teamed up to make the X-RHex Lite. The difference between this robot and the original Tailbot is that the XRL is about 60 times bigger, weighing…

Joggobot: The Flying Quadrocopter Jogging Companion

Joggobot: The Flying Quadrocopter Jogging Companion
It’s not always easy staying motivated when you train alone. This is one of the reasons why I find the Joggobot interesting. It’s kind of like a robotic coach, that follows you around as you run.…

Course of the Force: A Relay Race with Lightsabers!

Course of the Force: A Relay Race with Lightsabers!
Let’s be honest, not much will get your average geek to run. I mean, the typical things such as free smartphones, hot chicks in skimpy Comic-Con costumes, and obviously nachos will do the trick. You might be inclined to take a run for charity but lack the motivation. When you…

Nike Develops Prosthetic Leg Running Sole: Cyborgs Run Among Us
The Nike Sole was designed to fit on Össur’s Flex-Run prosthetic running blade, which is used by competitive amputee athletes. That being said, I wonder if future robots will be using this technology to outrun their human prey?…

Darpa FastRunner Robot: Who’s the Fastest of Them All?
Did you ever think that people would make a robot inspired by an ostrich? Well DARPA has those kinds of people and they think that their ‘bot will beat all others in terms of speed and stability, thanks to some high-tech wizardry.…

MABEL: Running Robot Rocks it

MABEL: Running Robot Rocks it
Most of the bipedal robots I’ve seen over the years are pretty pokey. But this robot can run at a peak speed of 6.8 MPH, which is definitely about the point where I fall down and go flying onto the floor on the treadmill.…

Robovie-PC Wins First Robot Marathon (At a Very Slow Pace)
Ah, marathons. It seems that robots are now taking up the task of running them for us. The winner of the first robot marathon is a small robot called Robovie-PC.…

Garmin Forerunner 405 Gps Watch Really Looks Like a Watch

Garmin Forerunner 405 Gps Watch Really Looks Like a Watch
While there have been several past attempts to create wrist-worn GPS sport devices, up until now they’ve been quite bulky and certainly wouldn’t pass as an ordinary wristwatch. Enter Garmin’s forthcoming Forerunner 405, a GPS-enabled watch that actually looks like a watch, and that’s lightweight enough to be worn all…

Nike Speed+ Watch Details Leaked

Nike Speed+ Watch Details Leaked
Apparently, Nike is getting ready to release a new digital watch that can record and upload data from their Nike+ shoe sensors without the use of an iPod. The new watch, called the Nike Speed+ appeared for just a few minutes on Nike’s European website before vanishing. Luckily, an enterprising…
