Last August, we heard news of gasoline powered Russian Boots... Where are they now? Oh.. That's right, people don't want to break their legs.

At 70 mpg, these gasoline-powered russian boots are definitely fuel efficient! Complete with tiny pistons, this footwear was classified by the Russian military uptil recently. These boots were designed by a top engineering student. However, due to Russia's oil-focussed economy, there is little room in the marketplace for entrepreneurs and this cool invention has remained little more than an interesting curiosity.
