How to make a ski board that can fly as fast as an airplane
If you’ve ever wanted to go skiing or snowboarding at the same time, you’re in luck.
You’re not alone.
A team of researchers has created an airborne ski board called the SuperSki, which is made from a pair of ultra-light, super-strong skis.
The board is designed to glide up to 3.8 meters per second, according to a press release from the university.
And if you’re not convinced, consider this: The SuperSkels design is also able to glide at speeds up to 35 mph.
The researchers hope to commercialize their design for use in the next few years.
They are hoping to have a prototype flying by the end of the year.
