Skyfire gets Silverlight support

There’s a reason the “wearable vehicle” concept has only taken off in games and insane stunts. It’s probably that part where there’s heavy machinery attached to your body and if you take a turn wrong, it’ll tear your limbs off. Let’s hear what the creator has to say about the death machine pictured above:

“It’s like riding two skateboards at once, but stable, because the machine supports the rider’s body… This isn’t fantasy, it’s a green vehicle, and all of the numbers are based in the real world.”

Well, it’s certainly electric, and the three-wheel setup may be stable (his comparison to riding two skateboards notwithstanding), but I just see so many ways this could go wrong. These are more suited to flashy, futuristic vehicular combat than anything else.
