I had a pair of these when i was a kid. they were styrofoam and they sucked. they're slow, and they make your legs want to do the splits.

I've seen this on TV 10 years ago.

There is a Korean old man who uses almost the same looking thing made out of styroform. He can walk on the river fasterer than the guy above while reading a newspaper. Talk to SBS, the major broadcasting company in Korea. I believe that he registered the patent much earlier.
