Stupidest Exercise Machine Ever?

Reaves sent me this link, and I had to pass it along. If ever there was a concept whose time has not come, this has to be it.

P.T. Barnum must be spinning in his grave like an atomic-powered gyroscope.

Well it would be easier on the knees.

Not easier than *walking.*

And look at all the money you save by applying the feet directly to the ground, plus being able to do it out of the street and all.

A decent stationary treadmill starts at $1000 and the better ones are two are three times that. What do you figure putting one on truck tires might cost?

Looks like car fodder to me, to me, too. Probably need some kind of license to use it on a street.

What do you figure this tank weighs? Three hundred pounds? How do you get it in and out of anywhere but a garage with a driveway? If you use it after dark, how much lighting will you have to have?

Nope. This is from Loserville Industries ...

Oh, I'm not saying it's worthy. Just trying to guess what their motivation was.
Aside from the beer talking through geeks on a lazy afternoon with too much time on their hands.
