Self-Balancing Cane

Not really a craft, I know, but if you know anyone who needs a cane in order to get around, this simple solution seems worth knowing about. Elegant solution, no? This from the site:
"Canes are created for folks who need a hand – definitely not another object to handle, potentially drop or otherwise worry about. While traditional staffs come in many shapes and sizes, few can boast such helpful independence from external supports. On steps or even slopes, these walking sticks stay relatively upright. While stopping to pay for something at a store or otherwise pausing during a walk, they can be left alone rather than needing to be leaned against a wall or object."

  1. This is fabulous. My Mum uses a cane and I think she'd love this!

  2. Nifty! I hope they make it to the market so when/if the day comes I can get one. It's one of those things where you say to yourself, "Now, why didn't I think of that?!"
