Tonight i saw a commercial for the TV show Shark Tank. i think the episode i'm interested in airs on Friday, November 9, 2012.

i've never actually watched the show, only seen ads and a few bits and pieces while channel surfing, but if i understand correctly, the show is about real people with inventions or other ideas they want to mass produce and sell, and these real people get to make a sales pitch to some rich people (the "Sharks") trying to get them to invest.

The best way i can think to describe the ad i want to tell you about is that it looks like some guy has designed suits that basically turn you into "G1 Wreck-Gar" (or "Tonka Cy-Kill" or "Armada High Wire", if you prefer). It looked like the guys wearing the suits got down on their hands and knees, only their hands and knees never touched the ground because their wheels got in the way, and they drove around. Yes, i think these suits are actually motorized in bike mode.

It was a short commercial, so i could be totally wrong about what i saw, but i hope i get to see the broadcast and find out!

Didn't watch the whole episode--this guy was just the first segment of the show, and i get bored with too much footage of talking heads, and not enough footage of the transforming motorized costumes in action--but what i saw was neat. More importantly, it gave me Drew Beaumier's name, which gave me even more and better footage and information: (mostly off-topic)

Of course, now that i'm finally getting around to posting, i'm finding fewer videos than i remember, but still some stuff worth seeing.

Drive Boots (make the full costumes function)

motorcycles (costume speed exaggerated for dramatic effect, i'm sure)

Artemis - World's first driving transformer costume (car robot costume)
