Arnold’s Pogogram Provides Social Content with a Bounce

You may also want to know that Pogogram even holds a pogo stick Guinness World Record for highest bounce.

First, there was the socially connected beer vending machine, a homey staple for frat houses with an abundance of engineering students. Next came the Arnold Bike from Arnold Amsterdam. Beer vending machine, check. Bike, check. Pogo stick from ArnoldNYC, check. Now, is there a way to combine all of the inventions together? Maybe a hydraulic bike with a beer dispenser?
