'iShoes' put a motor in your step

Prototypes reportedly can reach 15 mph.

iShoes

Something tells us that Ilya and Borish Kaganovich have more than a few scars on their knees. The two brothers are the inventors of the "iShoes," which are kind of a mashup of the Segway and motorized skateboards for your feet--and they look just as dorksome, if not worse.

Each pair has 4-inch wheels and weighs a total of 16 pounds but can still hit 15 miles per hour, according to Coolest-Gadgets. The shoes--which come in men's and women's sizes, if they get beyond the prototype phase--can reportedly go 5 to 7 miles without recharging the batteries.

They might be great for younger, more coordinated types, but not us. Just viewing the iShoes in action (video below) makes us want to climb into an "Armchair Cruiser."
