Today we present to you another of our entries for the Goggles, Guns, & Gadgets contest, the Overcompression Jump Boots created by The Frozen Joke of France.

Overcompresion Jump Boots 1

The overcompression jumpboot système is used by the First Aerojumper Commando Unit of the Third Army of Her Royal Majestie the Queen. This système uses high air presure to lower the impact on the body of an high altitude jump. This one is the prototype, so heavy and powerful that the wearer does not need a jump pack to save you from a 200 feet jump, but the boots are also pretty loud and heavy. Jules is the last of the team who won’t change this model for the small one, saying that if he used a jump pack his kilt would be burnt to his ass!

I have started with a knee high laced boots and driled, rivted, and fixed all the mechanics on it. The more difficult part was the small articulation point that can move in any direction without being stuck the feet or the ankle. The piston moves when you walk and the manometer uses a tiny spring to move the needle when the piston moves.
