|Here's what I found in the Skymall catalogue last week: The Gravity Defyer. Shoes with springs. Even if you're not, you'll walk young and dynamical. As you can see on the figure to the left, if you grin as stupidly as possible, you can jump up all the way up to the moon.|

You might just find yourself joining a dance class soon! You will find a renewed enjoyment for walking places. You'll park farther away at the grocery store, shopping mall, and the office just to get extra time walking in your Gravity Defyer Shoes. "
Undoubtedly, you'll feel like it's the spring time of your life.
However, since this is a science blog, a word of caution is necessary. As a smart guy already pointed out, you should be aware that this ingenious invention doesn't actually defy gravity. I.e. you'll have to wait for anti-gravitation to be discovered to actually levitate. The only thing that's really innovative about this product is its name.
