A man fan is one way to describe this way of getting around when the snowfall might otherwise be keeping you at home. The speed’s not bad either, though braking…
Americans and people around the world spend a lot of money on transportation. One fellow in the Spanish city of Lleida, Catalan, has a solution that looks like it’s a lot of fun. Combined with skis, it seems to work great in the snow, which, dependent upon where you live, could be a lot of the time.
He’s taken a large fan and created a propulsion device not unlike that of a swamp airboat, in which the fan pushes him forward. He gets enough speed out of it to reach and possibly surpass what would be considered a safe rate, dependent upon the age of the skier or the pedestrian startled by his presence. [[VIDEO BELOW]]
And while there are many places across the globe that don’t get snow or enough snow to make this type of system practical, one could theoretically replace the skies with roller skates or roller blades and achieve similar results.
There appears to be a hand control for the engine to kill it or cut the output as stopping is a little tricky. He might want to install a protective screen on the back side of the contraption as well, as it’s conceivable that someone could unwittingly lose a hand, a head or some other vital body part quite easily.
With traffic congestion a constant irritation for millions around the world, having a system that occupies little more space than a human pedestrian could be quite attractive and it’s likely a lot cheaper than a segue, which doesn’t offer a model that works in the snow.
The narrow European streets are easily navigated by this guy. Doing so would be a piece of cake for the wide roadways we are enjoy in America.
