    Link: Treadmobile - It`s a treadmill. It`s a mode of transportation. it`s completely redundant.

    It looks like it goes a bit faster than his running speed, if not then yes, it is entirely redundant, Or as Mr. Dink would say, "It`s exactly like walking or running, but much more expensive!"

    All the fitness of being on a treadmill and all the beauty of nature. I think that already exists, might it be called jogging in the park?

    only reason for using it in my opinion would be it would take more effort to move about using that than it would be to run the same distance
    really stupid idea in my opinion

    That actually looks like it could be with a partner... if you don`t mind looking like a dork.

    Seriously, when I was a kid, I got to ride a tandem bike. It was friggin` great. I don`t know why I liked it so much, but there was a sense of teamwork and shared doom at every turn.

    I don`t know if I`d like it as much now, though. Again, you look pretty dorky on a tandem bike (or treadmill), so if you`re worried about the cool factor (and I am uber-cool and plan to stay that way) then you should avoid tandem bikes.

    Maybe its supposed to provide a lower impact workout? Still seems redundant irregardless though... (please note the intended irony of using a redundant word like irregardless to describe such a redundant invention)

    Everyone is going on about the pointlessness of this product, and no-one seems to have worked out how it works. IT HAS GEARS... like a BIKE. That means if you put in a bit more effort then you can go faster than just walking or running. Also it will use momentum to keep going when you slow down a bit.
    Unfortunately it looks quite a bit heavier than a bike, so nowhere near as efficient unless they make a lightweight bare frame version.

    "Also it will use momentum to keep going when you slow down a bit."

    Really? I`d assume the treadmill rubber would move in conjunction with the wheels, so you`d have to move your feet anyway, otherwise you`d fall off when it sped down a hill (though you wouldn`t have to put so much energy into it)

    I never understood the advantage of a treadmill as opposed to the ground. At least when you`re outside or in an arena you`re not staring at a wall or a TV.
    This, on the other hand, is completely god damn stupid.
