Orbitwheel skates – eh?

For $144.95, you can break your ankles with the Orbitwheel. Not quite like Rollerblades, the Orbitwheel skates are single wheeled, one for each foot; it requires a ‘twisting’ motion to generate movement. Also, instead of facing forward while you skate, the Orbitwheel makes you skate sideways.

“Like a cross between a skateboard and inline skates, but with more freedom and simplicity than either, the Orbitwheel is a brand new concept for wheeled sports,” says the product page. Eh. You want to know what the Orbitwheel reminds me of? It reminds of the single wheeled motorcycle, except miniaturized, motor-less, and strapped to your feet.

I’d rather have the iShoes. At least with those, I won’t get as tired. But, if you want a pair of Orbitwheel skates, get ’em here.
