1. That is AWESOME! This provides a whole other dimension to finding the rightful owner of the glass slipper. 2. I think there should be a whole series of engineering fairy tales! 3. You should start with the 3 little pigs (how much force it takes to knock down the various houses or something)

Cool, let's move to Rapunzel's hair, that's a baffling one.

How about "The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs" (gotta love that Aesop). A little biology mixed with heavy duty alchemy? To boot, isn't this story what Silicon Valley is all about - ok maybe I'm being a little cynical. Love the 3 little pigs idea - sounds like great fodder for MythBusters!

Is some one is going to manufacture this item based on these information?

Agreed, the 3 little pigs idea would make a great MythBusters episode!

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!

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

LoL, yea there is always some loony that seeks the adrenalin rush. But in a second thought, that would be a cool amusement park! ;-)
