Walking in the air

engineering careers  Walking in the air

A New York-based start-up, Moonshine Crea, is developing moonwalking shoes. The electromagnetic shoes, designed to stimulate the effect of walking in less gravity, are being developed by the design and engineering firm. The shoes, made from memory face, are fitted with powerful N45 Neodyminum magnetics and have two magnetic layers. The north poles in these layers face each other, pushing the layers of the shoes sole apart and pushing you into the air.
