Patent: Body Mounted Sail Assembly
Patent Number/Filing Date: 5,713,603 February 3, 1998
So, you’re roller skating or regular skating along and you hit a speed bump and get a bit of a lift. Naturally, you imagine what it would be like to get some real lift or maybe go off a plank and fly for a bit. Well, maybe you don’t, but the inventor of this patent did with this rather complex looking apparatus of sails and levers, meant to let you get more lift when you go over bump or off ramps. Shaped like rough wings or sails, the main part of the apparatus is geared to giving you lift while you jump and speed up.
