The Utility of a Stump

“But I don’t have anywhere to train!”

I hear this complaint just about every day. People email me wondering how they can train since they don’t have any good hotspots nearby. Boo hoo. So what. This is an example of what you can do with a stump or six. And a giant metal ladder, but that’s besides the point.

Smart 341 Parkour Wins LA Show Design Challenge

The awesomely ridiculous Smart 341 Parkour has won the LA Show Design Challenge. The participants in the Challenge presented their cars in a script for a short film. Not at all surprisingly, the Parkour won out.

In the story, the 341 Parkour helps reporter Annie Angle on a mission to write her first and potentially career-making, front page news article in a city notoriously known for a lack of parking spaces. The “epic” story goes that on an early Sunday morning, a newspaper article catches Annie’s eyes, titled: “Smart Granny Robots Missing!”Using her Smart 341 Parkour and its three different modes – a typical drive mode, a fly mode that allows the vehicle to hover far above the streets, and a climb mode that allows the vehicle to run up the walls of skyscrapers – Annie sets off on an investigation to discover the missing link for her journalistic masterpiece.

Motus

This is now one of my favorite freerunning videos. The mix of parkour and flips is just about perfect; enough that you can see that the traceurs know what they’re doing, but not so much that it feels like the video is all about flips and showing off.
