Today’s invention is a novel way to enjoy exercise. It consists of a small trampoline on wheels.
When someone bounces on the trampoline, sensors in the springs around the base pass data to an onboard computer which calculates accurately the direction and in-flight time of the user.
These data allow the trampoline’s wheels to be driven along the ground to catch the user when next he/she descends.
With practice, someone could thus learn to make long-distance bounds, eg along a road or track, whilst the trampoline automatically repositions itself to support the next, enormous step.
