Inventor: Michael Jackson

The world was shaken to the tragic news of Michael Jacksons passing this weekend. As weeks progress and the world seeks into his incredible mysterious life many new things will be learned.  One element that has surfaced is his contribution not only to music and dance, but in inventing!

In his amazing performance for “Smooth Criminal” Michael gracefully leans 45 degrees forwards then back seemingly defying the laws to physics. How did he do it? With a pretty awesome patent (5255452) on shoes to allow this mesmerizing act. Watch a classic video of this move in the video above here. (see at 3:50)

I hope someone makes these shoes available for all to rock out on! Michael, you are a global legend who made massive changes to our society and an icon in history never to be forgotten … Rest in Peace.
