Design Team:
Masashi Kaneda, Fabian Kreis, Yohei Noshiro, David Cohen

Summary:
The innovative, affordable and fun personal mobility vehicle from Subaru’s designers was created to change the man-vehicle relationship in a revolutionary way. The “SUBA-ROO” is a one-legged, self-contained, wearable mobility vehicle with a propulsion method which mimics the efficient yet powerful jumping motions of a kangaroo. With the SUBA-ROO’s all-road, go anywhere capability and Subaru’s Eye-Sight safety system, the path to your destination is unlimited. On the road, a trail, a beach, or in a building, SUBA-ROO will widen the boundaries of mobility and bring back the joy of personally mobility for everyone to enjoy.

Sign me up for prototyping Subaru!!!! Please- In my lifetime!!!!!! I saw something similar to this British Top Gear but it was on wheels. A kangaroo-like leg?? Think of the applications. Could be life changing for so many.

X-mas list topper right there!!!

Only drawback... instant pot-hole creator. You think our roads are bad now, just wait until the local Roo gang goes out on Sundays for their weekly cruise!
