This paper introduces Bubble Jumper, a super human sport enhancing your jump and enlarge your bodies circumference (grith) simulating an augmented sumo wrestler. We focus on the experience of superhuman strength in the legs and giving you the feeling of a larger body for the sport. We present the historical context of Sumo as well as our approach to augment the sport into Bubble Jumper. We show some early design prototypes and the iterative process to improve them, as well as rules and ideas for digital augmentation of the sport.
