Jump Snap-the fake jump rope

I know here on Slashgear we have mentioned the occasional workout gadget, well this one takes the cake. It's an electronic jump rope, without the rope. Yes, you read correctly it has no rope, kind of defeats the purpose doesn't it?

This rope is for those who have no coordination, or at least that is what they are claiming. If you watch the video advertisement on the manufacturer's website it just boggles the mind even more. Basically what it boils down to is they are trying to market yet another overpriced product for your poor senile grandmother who doesn't even know what day it is.

The best part is they are selling this junk for around $60 plus shipping and handling. Maybe for another $50 they will give you an attachment that adds a rope to it, wouldn't that be brilliant?!
