There’s the smart basketball hoop that helps improve your skills, and then inventor Shane Wighton’s dunk boots, which definitely can’t be used in real games. He may call them dunk boots, but they definitely look more like Inspector Gadget’s extendable legs if we’re being honest.
Initially, Wighton wanted to build something that resembled a scissor lift, but considering it weighs at least 3,000-pounds, that idea had to be thrown out since a lift of that size couldn’t be attached to his foot. A collapsible ladder design was his next idea, and to make that happen, an air cylinder had to be installed on each leg to help them extend at the push of a button. All of the metal parts were fabricated using a waterjet machine, while a 3D printer took care of the other pieces.
