About

"How I wish I have a pair of roller skate to get there!" I think most of us have had such idea multiple times in our life, when you go shopping, when you are walking from your parking lot to your office, when you are walking to somewhere that the distance not worth driving.

Now we have THE solution! This is the real revolution of personal transportation! This is for hard working, fun seeking, active young boys and girls. This is also for those moms and dads, who love to be active, to be enthusiastic, to be young!

A pair of roller skates attached to your legs and concealed under your pants, which can be used whenever you want to ride the wind and be hidden when you want to walk on your feet.

It is mainly composed of a wheel, a foldable pedal and mechanical parts to realize its function. There are generally two ways to realize this invention. One is a "folding" mechanism and the other is a "piston" mechanism. My video helps illustrate both ways.

There are convenient roller skates, some even with power on the market, but all of them is not convenient enough. You always have to carry them in a bag when not using it. Obviously, you can not carry them with you all the time and use them whenever you need. My invention completely changes this situation. Now you have something you can choose to conceal under your pants, that goes with you anywhere, and ready to ride at any time.

Risks and challenges

I have good experience with design software like AutoCAD for the designing stage.
I'm working at a large research institute, where we have a very well equiped mechanics shop. We will work together on this project.
There will be obstacles like how to balance between material strength to bear body weight and the weight of the device itself, as well as mechanical design to fit people with different sizes. We'll conquer these with perseverence and repeated experiments
