As for the inflexibility of the sole, the Dutch and the Swedes have clogs and can still dance. :-)

That's where you need material woven out of textile-grade fiberglass. Higly recommended for the show upper, to increase comfort.

Actually, no. The original publication by Perrault refers clearly to the word "verre". There is a controversy in French because author Balzac, 150 years later, proposed it could be a typo and should read "vair"... But it most likely is not the case. http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controverse_sur_la_composition_des_pantoufles_de_Cendrillon

The engineering analysis was tremendously fun. However, the explanation for the appearance of the glass slipper, is that it was never in the original story, which was french, and in that the shoe was made of vair, or grey squirrel fur, and vair sounds like verre, which is, of course, glass (http://www.iletaitunehistoire.com/genres/contes-legendes/lire/cendrillon-biblidcon_029).

Talking about something similar, have you heard of the concept of Space elevator? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_elevator Arthur C. Clarke introduced it to the general public in "The Fountains of Paradise", although it is an idea from a Russian scientist...

and How will they make the glass shoe flexibility to suit for soft feet when walk or even run?

But no matter how tall it was, Rene, I bet Felix Baumgartner would have skydived off it :)

What about Jack and the beanstalk, what kind of genetic engineering and mechanical engineering is required to have a plant grow as long as to reach the sky? Not to metioned the speed and materials required to make it grow over night!
