Rollerblade Man's Entire Body Covered in Wheels: Kama Sutra Positions at 60 MPH (Video)


Rollerblade Man of the 21st Century

We're big advocates for all things human-powered, but we really really like to see this particular efficiency put to use for transportation. Enter with a flash "Rollerblade Man" who's keeping all his options open by covering his entire body with a suit of wheels allowing one to travel up to 60 miles-per-hour while maintaining any position found in the Kama Sutra. More about Rollerblade Man after the jump and as always, please note well: he's wearing a helmet. According to some quick Googling, Maniac World tells us of Rollerblade Man:

Frenchman Jean-Yves Blondeau first conceived of his plastic Buggy Rollin' suit in 1994, while he was a student at Olivier de Serres design school, in Paris.

The invention, which allows a wearer to top 60 miles per hour while maintaining any position found in the Kama Sutra, didn't exactly catch fire with consumers.

Not one to give up, Blondeau recently refined the suit to a stripped-down 31-wheel version and developed his own playbook of moves, like the Zaphial (rolling flat on your back with all four limbs pointed straight up) and the Smooth Buggy Dog (three limbs on the ground and one rolling along a wall).
