Hover Hockey – inspired by solarbabies movie.
these can be built outdoors for cheaper construction costs.
use strong permanent magnets to hold the slide block in place. separated with air gap and dolly wheels. air gap can be controlled to reduce friction also powered wheels could lessen the effects of inertia. halbach array could also help make field strength more focused.
a winch system ran by dual nema 36 stepper motors could make rapid repelling easier.
the magnetic floor could be used to sense and repel a skaters shoes with directional magnetic resistance providing motion to user..
using same system but no magnetic floor, just barely able to touch with feet also have counterweights to help you jump higher than normal
- low power jetpacks with cable system in a rink size arena would open new possability’s too
- fly around like iron man in a rink size arena
- augmented FPS, real life quake
magnetic roof hoist dolly – machine shop applications
less clutter and more maneuverability.
maybe dome assembly or steel vessels with valve placement for welding
some quick math, 30 carts per arena and 10 arena’s @ 5 dollars an hour open 24/7 would be something like 8 or 9 million dollars each year or 20k per day
50 states x 10 outlets per state . united states alone has 50+ million potential market.
would estimate canada’s love for hockey and games to be near that asell
europe market about 50+ million
asia 150 – 200 million
global somewhere in the range of 400+ million dollars
