    :) Now, that’s a better alternative to my Blobby Walk on the treadmill.

    I saw a show on the TV just the other day that featured this twin wing design. US Special Forces (Seals) are testing a small underwater version that seems to require something like one third the energy of swim fins. It straps on below the knees and the swimmer uses (what looked like) a dolphin kick to move the apparatus. A three-way race against submerged swimmers with this design vs flippers vs barefoot had this design far far ahead and arriving much less tired.

    My buddy Peter tried one of those – but he sank ;-)

    It looks like fun. It seems to be on a calm lake. I wonder what it would be like on the sea, with waves…..

    Is there some story about that thing? It is amazing. I want one.

    It also looks like a great full body workout. I suspect you have to very fit to go more than 10 yards on it.

    It would be such fun to see commuters who live near rivers, like in Pittsburgh, taking these to work every day. Picture rush hour.

    I looked for it on your wishlist but alas…..

    It seems like you could attach something to do the work for you….?

    Does anyone have a link to the “Navy Seal” contraption mentioned above?

    Great article.
