Spring Walker Design

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I was watching the show a while back (sorry I don't remember which episode) and one of the contestants had engineered a device which attatched to his feet and gave him a much bouncier step. It was a rather odd device so I'm finding it a little difficult to describe. I'm assuming it has something to do with applied motion. If anyone knows where I could find the plans for a device like this, please let me know.

Thanks, Alex
