At first I thought "this is as much a WTF as bacon" (i.e., not at all; instead, awesome), but than I saw it ends basically in the ground. Wouldn't it rip your pants every time you try to use it? The end should be at knee level above the ground. IMHO.
But other than that, awesome invention. Now they just have to make a similar invention to go up the stairs.
I hate tags
