Roller On Almabtrieb





Jean-Yves Blondeau is a french  inventor of the 32-wheel roller suit (also known as the wheel suit or buggy rollin). This suit places a number of rollers (similar to those found on roller blades) on most of the major joints, the torso, and the back. The wearer can ride downhill in a variety of positions (upright, prone, supine, on all fours, etc.) at speeds of up to 70 mph (112 km/h). He has been featured on television shows in several countries on all continents. The buggy rollin wheel suit can be used on any surface suitable for roller skates.
He built the roller suit as part of his graduation project at the industrial design school École nationale supérieure des arts appliqués et des métiers d'art (also known as the Olivier de Serres) in Paris. The study theme was: "systems that underline the sensations caused by the displacement of the human center of gravity in relation to support points in order to move into space". Read more
