Cordless Jump Rope.

Proof that you can get almost anything patented nowadays: Lester Clancy just got a patent for his invention: a cordless jump-rope.

What makes this invention work is the moving weights inside the handles. They simulate the feel of a rope moving, Clancy said. Well, it's only one handle so far because Clancy is waiting for financial backers before building its partner.

But why jump rope without a rope?

It's perfect for the clumsy, Clancy said. "If you are still jumping, you're still using your legs as well as your arms, and getting the cardiovascular workout. You just don't have to worry about tripping on the rope."

Cordless HANDLELESS jumpropes! They use the momentum of the rope in your MIND! You PRETEND there is a rope and handles.
In fact, why don't we just make believe we skipped rope and call it a day?
This one really should have been submitted to the crew at Halfbakery.com first. (in fact, now that I look, I see they had one or two for clumsy rope jumpers...)
OK, now where was I? ...1001...1002...1003. whew! *wipes imaginary sweat from brow* ...1004...
