    you guys shoulda put that on youtube! but i agree that if you leaned forward the effects of the pull would be turned down some. if not you could make a makeshift "crutch" attach to the shoes almost like ski poles, so that you could hold on to em, and not get your feet from flying under you.

    but if he did lean forward and was able to catch all of the thrust....eventually the bottle rockets would of blown up and ruined his rollerblades....ahaha.

    Basically what you need are 2 motors that are powerful and strong enough to power and support the weight of a human and a 2 batteries that that can provide enough power and last long enough. You then need to develop a control system, find some way to fit all those gears and the motor into a wheel and find some way to get all of that to fit into something not much bigger than a pair of roller blades.

    ......................like I said, with airgear, physics weeps.

    Well lets see, what do we knows...?

    Lol, definitely too much speed at one moment, even at Kazu stance, will probably cause a wipeout. And like that guy before me was saying, but how bout the pressure? Heh, it might be possible to like have multiple power sources, with each activating at different pressures, causing an imitation of pressure acceleration in AirGear. However, doing so would make it even more bulky on the blades, but this would allow "gears" to be set in. LOL I think too much

    At that point, I think they cease to become rollerblades. haha just kidding.

    Realistically, the technology to create A-Ts is probably several years away.

    Ah, to clear up the mess i said befores, like a motor can go faster under more energy, but up to a certain point where the motors breakdown. But like, maybe combining air pressure and computer moniters built-in can let more energy power to the motors. Of course, this would then allow customization of "Air Gears", but doing this method would also bring a new problem... HOW DO WE STOP?!!

    lol i have 3 ways of stopping
    - Depending on the wheels, the furthest back wheel has a seperate motor that is free unless given pressure or a switch to make it rotate back words and force-stop the front wheels. Problems... This would destory wheels an possibly break while your still riding XD
    - Have pressure sensors on the sides so that when you force stop on the side, it cuts power instantly on the wheels. Problems... Wheels again might be destroyed, break down while riding... oh and oh yeah, you might not be able to stop fast enough...
    - My favourite XD: Crashing on a patch of grass. LOL

    =\ i think u guys are over thinking this. They have plenty of small motors out there now that actually produce a good punch, but not to the extent of AG. As for pressure wise, its simple to do make things pressure sensitive. A simple design is just seriously follow a car's design. How to slow down is the same way, just have a braking system similar to cars. =\

    lol... Well how would you mae the motor run?

    EDIT!!!! (to avoid double postings, hahaha)
    Ah... Well I ahve idea for power... but it would require rods on the sides of the backwheels... and pressure would allow the energy to be released one at a time. lol... Its stupid, i know, but eh... its still a thought lol

    Edit...edit...
    Rods that contains the power source....

    Sorry I got real serious with this haha.

    Well, I actually thought about trying different things. MIT just made a new motor thats about the size of a quarter. They havent released it because until they can make them all run the exact same way at the same time, they won't.

    I put the motor idea on hold for now because I figure I can figure that out later.But... a motor heats up. The more heat, the more breakdown. So the wheels would have to be vented to release any exhaust and allow air cooling unless you somehow create a liquid cooling system to make it more efficient. Of course, this would cost more too.

    The suspension, which it seems like alot of people forgot about, (how else do they jump so high and land from astronomical heights?) my friend who does aggressive inline for real has jumped off of a roof top and landed it. Granted he said his feet felt like they exploded, but still. It's possible. So, for the suspension, I found out they have 2-wheel frames with shock absorbers. Kaiser makes them. I figure an improvement would be to try to find special rated actuators like on the trunks and hatches of some cars or screen doors, to handle the weight and assumed pressure from a 10-20ft fall with a 100-200lb person. You put two into the skate, both starting at the center and going to just behind the wheel since it is a 2 wheel frame. I'm talking so it makes a ^ shape. So the suspension is done.

    As for the physics of it all, that would be up to the person. Yes, a fast rate of acceleration at any extreme end would cause you to flip. Think see-saw or plane propeller. You would have to have a strong body and excellent control to start out. You would then have to keep that posture making small adjustments as you go and you'd have to make sure the skates themselves dont get ahead of you. In other words, a very talented athlete.
