Craft & Design Energy & Sustainability


Nicholas sent in this fantastic SnoDeck – a motorized snow skateboard –

Systems Design Engineering students at University of Waterloo demonstrate a skateboard modded for use in snow. The dual tracks are driven by electric drill motors and suspended on elongated skate trucks. Turning radius is 2 meters. A wired kill switch stops the machine when the skater (tracker?) steps off.
