A Pittsburgh-based robotics and engineering startup recently unveiled Moonwalkers, a pair of battery-powered shoes that it claims can boost walking speed by up to 250%.
一家总部在美国匹兹堡的机器人与工程初创企业近日推出了一款名为”月球漫步者”的电池供电鞋,据称可以将步行速度提高250%之多。


At first glance, Moonwalkers look like a pair of futuristic roller-skates, but there is actually a lot more to them than that.
乍看之下,”月球漫步者”就像一双未来主义风格的旱冰鞋,但实际上鞋里大有乾坤。


You’re actually meant to walk with them the way you would with regular shoes or sneakers, letting the motorized wheels put a spring in your step.
你穿着它可以像穿普通鞋子或跑鞋一样走路,让电动轮助你脚下生风。


Powered by a state-of-the-art brushless DC motor, this ingenious contraption is actually a platform that can be attached to a wide variety of footwear to significantly increase your walking speed by up to a reported 7mph/11kph.
这款设计巧妙的鞋的动力源自最先进的无刷直流电动机,实际上就是一个可以附着于各种鞋类的平台,能够显著提升步行速度,据称可达每小时7英里(11千米)。


For comparison, the average walking speed ranges from 2.5 to 4 mph.
相比之下,人类平均步行速度为每小时2.5到4英里(4到6千米)。


The sensation of walking with the world’s fastest shoes has been compared to that of walking on a ‘moving walkway’ in an airport.
穿着”世界最快鞋”行走的感觉与在机场移动走道上行走的感觉差不多。


“Moonwalkers are not skates. They’re shoes. The world’s fastest shoes actually,” Xunjie Zang, founder and CEO of Shift Robotics said. “You don’t skate in them. You walk. You don’t have to learn how to use them, the shoes learn from you.”
Shift Robotics公司的创始人兼首席执行官臧迅杰(音译)称:”月球漫步者不是旱冰鞋,而是健步鞋,实际上它是全世界走路最快的健步鞋。你不是穿着它滑行,而是步行,你无须学习如何使用这种鞋,鞋子会学习你的走路方式。”


But do the world’s fastest shoes work on uneven terrain, or things like stairs?
但是,穿着这款世界最快鞋能否在不平坦的地形上行走或爬楼梯呢?


We all know how tricky those are to mitigate in roller-skates.
我们都知道穿旱冰鞋走这种路有多难。


Well, apparently the designers took that into consideration and implemented a simple gesture that allows the wearer to lock the wheels so that they can walk up or down stairs as they would in regular footwear.
不过,显然设计师已经考虑到了这一点,让穿着者用一个简单的动作就可以锁住轮子,这样他们就能像穿普通鞋一样上下楼梯了。

This week, the tech industry witnessed Elon Musk take the reins of Twitter.
上周,科技行业见证了埃隆•马斯克执掌推特。


The newly-minted CEO has already fired several executives and has now sent an email to employees detailing plans to continue layoffs throughout the company’s workforce.
这位新上任的CEO已经解雇了几名高管,并向员工发送了一封电子邮件,详细说明了公司继续裁员的计划。


Wrapping up his first week as owner, Elon Musk reportedly has plans to cull his flock.
据报道,马斯克作为”推特首席”的第一周结束后,他计划裁员。


An earlier new report in Bloomberg revealed that Musk had plans to fire half of Twitter’s workforce, approximately 3,700 staffers.
彭博社早些时候的一篇新报道透露,马斯克计划解雇推特一半的员工,约3700名员工。


Employees have now been told via email not to come into office, as widespread layoffs were set to take place.
由于大规模裁员即将发生,公司已通过电子邮件通知员工不要上班。


Twitter is now subject to a potential class action lawsuit, with employees alleging that Twitter’s layoffs are in violation of the US Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.
推特现在面临着一场潜在的集体诉讼,员工们声称推特的裁员行为违反了美国《工人调整和再培训通知法》。

Elsewhere in Musk-related tech news, NASA shared that SpaceX is aiming to launch its Starship in December.
在其他与马斯克有关的科技新闻中,美国国家航空航天局分享了SpaceX计划在12月发射其星际飞船的消息。


While the space agency has previously launched prototypes of the Starship 6 miles (10 km) into the sky, this is the first time it’ll attempt to fully launch the rocket into orbit.
虽然NASA此前曾将这艘星际飞船的原型发射到6英里(10公里)的空中,但这是它首次试图将这艘火箭完全抛入轨道。


“We have four major Starship flights planned. The first one here is coming up in December,” Mark Kirasich, an official from NASA’s Artemis moon program, revealed during a livestream, Reuters reported.
“我们追踪了四次主要的星际飞船飞行。”据路透社报道,NASA阿尔忒弥斯登月计划的官员马克•基拉西奇在直播中透露称:”第一次将在12月。”
