Run. Running. Running on water. Running On Water. ROW. Rowing ?
Sounds really good, I quite like the name. I just need to check it doesn’t collide with any other known sports / activities, and be ready to register this catchy name before somebody else does!
Starting with social media, I noticed that each platform is somehow categorised, and used for different purposes:
Instagram is all about visual presence, beautiful people and sceneries
Twitter for more serious topics / conversations
Facebook mhmm recently, mostly for conspiracy theories, like flat Earth, anti vaccine movement, right wing groups… generally a freak show.
And I am definitely not ok with Mark Zuckerberg’s point of view, he thinks that it’s okay to publish every single piece of bullshit, calling it a ‘freedom of speech’.
I might delete my Facebook account later, we will see.
Anyway, this leaves me with my news section, where I write about the future.
The future of walk on water activities is really clear – running on water. It’s a part of human nature.
Since ancient times we want everything to be faster, higher or longer. And it’s a competition, we need to compete! We want competitors, we want to win. Or at least, do everything that we can.
You cannot argue with human nature so developing was a struggle, here is what I have done so far to help innovate our designs:
Concept number 1:
I first started with two poles and let’s start with the obvious – they were working 🙂
But, the result was not that spectacular. Normally, my device can reach 4 mph, with the two poles reaching 6-7 mph… the difference is not groundbreaking,
I was slightly disappointed about these results. Very light carbon fibre tubes, carbon fibre poles, approx 8 liters of volume times the speed at the end of the pole… on paper it looked good. I was expecting more.
Anyway, water can be a bit unpredictable sometimes…
Concept number 2:
Energy recovery system, it looked really cool – two rotors interconnected, when you push one leg, the rotor pushes the other leg.
I will save you the details – not efficient enough.
To be honest, I didn’t really notice any difference with speed which made me really disappointed due to the fact that it looked soo cool !
Concept number 3: (third time lucky)!
I had a lot of free time this Summer. Like everyone, probably. I spent this time studying all available mechanisms. And when i saw it – i knew it, this is the one.
And it worked, even better than i thought it would.
Still, a lot of work is needed – it has to be lighter and i need to modify the body of ski to cope with additional tension.
Due to the planned patent protection I cannot say anything else about this development 🙂
YOUPPI !!! :-)))
