Jean-Yves Blondeau aka Rollerman

Frenchman Jean-Yves Blondeau first conceived of his plastic Buggy Rollin’ suit in 1994, while he was a student at Olivier de Serres design school, in Paris.

But the invention, which allows a wearer to top 60 miles per hour while maintaining any position found in the Kama Sutra, didn’t exactly catch fire with consumers. Not one to give up, Blondeau recently refined the suit to a stripped-down 31-wheel version and developed his own playbook of moves, like the Zaphial (rolling flat on your back with all four limbs pointed straight up) and the Smooth Buggy Dog (three limbs on the ground and one rolling along a wall).

Thanks to Lilchris. Discuss about it in the forums.

And if you’re into japanese mangas, you may noticed that the Suit of Jean-Yves Blondeau is really close some of the things we can see in Gunnm (Battle Angel Alita) by Yukito Kushiro.
