I don't think they're saying it's a new method, just a known one.

I forsee athletes using a constant 2-4G as a power training environment in the future.

Obviously not at first but I can see high lvl MMA fighters or wealthy Ninja Warior competitors utilizing it.

I trying to imagine this. It would only work if you were traveling that speed too, right. If you changed your speed by riding a bike 500 meters per minute (~18MPH) the other way, you would start floating again?

But if you rode your bike 1000 meters per minute (36mph) in the direction against the spin you would be back to 1G.

This idea has been proposed since the 1950's. Also check the movie "2001" space station. It's a giant wheel orbiting the earth.

From what I've read the potential forces generated inside such a craft (e.g. If someone jumps up an down) could seriously damage the tube... Am I on to something here guys, or should we just go ahead and build this?
