When shoveling snow, you usually end up throwing your back out, falling over, getting pneumonia, and eventually, you die. Or you could start shoveling snow with the Wovel. The Wovel is this huge contraption with a big wheel and a snow shovel attatched to it. You use your body weight to move the snow around and clear out gigantic patches of snow. The scoop on the front is enormous — "easily throws five foot piles of snow" — which makes the Wovel ideal for big jobs that need to be done quickly. Personally, I'd like to find some little kids during a big snowfall and would chase after them with this thing. Genius. You can also pick up some accessories like foam grips. Now all you need are bike pegs and you're the next BMX/Wovel star. If you demand to eradicate back pain this winter, grab yourself a Wovel for $120 and get to work. The newly redesigned version goes on sale this month.
