Israeli company sells hip abduction machine for $1,500
- by admin
Israel’s largest hardware manufacturer, Israel Tool Corp., has announced that it will sell a hip abduction device to a man in California for $950.
The company’s chief executive, Oded Regev, said on Sunday that the company had decided to sell the device, which can be purchased for $850, to a California man, named Daniel Shavit, in the United States because he was “obsessed with the idea of getting to the center of the Earth.”
The Israeli company said it had received a request from Mr. Shavits family in Israel and had been “furious” to receive the device.
“It’s an invention that will allow us to make a better product, and it will bring more jobs to Israel,” Mr. Regevs company said in a statement.
The hip abduction, which involves pressing a hole in the hip with a small machine, was invented by Israeli inventor Dr. Nir Ben-David in 2004.
It has been marketed in Israel, Canada, Spain and other countries as a way of “saying hello to the earth” and to “help people in remote locations to feel safe and comfortable,” Mr Shavitt said in the video.
Mr. Shravitt, a former army sergeant, has been in a coma for several weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured leg in a bicycle accident.
He was also diagnosed with cancer.
The Israeli company’s statement said it was also working with Mr. Ben-Haim’s family.
Mr Shavitz, a father of three, said he had a dream about his son and hoped that he could be an astronaut someday.
He said he is hoping the device can help his son get back to the Earth and help others who may be suffering from cancer.
The video of the demonstration shows a small black, metal device with a rubber band at the end of it that Mr. Meir’s mother said was “like a zipper.”
The device, a “wayback” machine, has an elastic band that fits over the hip and allows it to move back and forth between the two places where a user presses on the elastic band.
The device is powered by a battery, which has to be drained every time the device is in use.
The device can also be turned off or even disabled by pressing a button on the machine.
Mr Meir said he hoped to eventually be able to move from one place to another with the device and use it to get from the beach to the park.
“If this device could work, it would make a difference for everyone,” Mr Meir told Israeli media.
“You can get to the centre of the earth with it, or you can get out of it, and you can walk away from the sun, or if you’re lucky, you can go to a country that you haven’t seen in decades and experience a new culture,” he said.
He said the device could be used to get around a city and back again.
“Imagine being able to walk down the street, the streets are packed with tourists, the police are there, and suddenly you’re able to get to your destination in the blink of an eye,” he told The Jerusalem Times.
“The idea is to be able not only to walk from one point to another but to be comfortable doing that.
It’s a completely new way of living.”
Mr Meirs mother, Yossi Shaviti, told Al Jazeera that she and her family had never even considered having their son become an astronaut, saying it was “too dangerous” and would not be for him.
“We thought he would become a doctor or something like that, and that’s why he started to go to school,” she said.
“We’re proud that he got a job, and he’s happy, but I don’t think it will make him an astronaut.”
