Abstract

Superman is a hypothetical concept with exceptionally supreme powers. How would it be to have one of his powers? Ever imagined yourself of running at a smeared lightning speed? Well, now you can! ‘Kangaroo boots’ is a solution to this. Inspired from kangaroos who have a unique back feet structure, these boots are a replica of the same feature which would store and release the elastic energy and increase the running speed of a human up to 25–30 mph. The main perspective of this study is to provide more agility while running off-road and climbing steep roads. It will also make humans more active and travel short distances in minimal time reducing the use of fossil fuels. Keeping in mind the future scope, these boots can be used in human enhancement, military, sports and robotic applications.
