Device for the week 1 – Bionic Boots

Bionic Boots

The Bionic Boot is made by inventor Keahi Seymour as a device which makes a human run faster.

What’s great about it:

– let users run up to 25 miles per hour.

– easy to-use

What could be improved:

– to extend the distance and speed( now, it can only up to 25 mph (40 km/h)).

– the Bionic Boots weigh in at six pounds, it needs to be lighter. For example, to using 3D printing with titanium or carbon fiberthis.

– device is based on Keahi’s size and weight, so it needs to add some adjustable parts so as to be wearable for different users.
