— August 28, 2009 — Lifestyle
You learn to walk during the very first couple of years in your life and it’s one thing you will NEVER forget how to do. Walking innovations come from all over the place because there are so many ways to walk.

There are those who can’t walk, those who struggle with walking and then there are those who can moonwalk. These walking innovations spread across these areas with items such as robotic legs, $150,000 canes and even Michael Jackson LEGO. Sit down, take a break and enjoy these walking innovations.
