An Introduction

 Alright, so here I am, making a blog, documenting my various projects and ideas, as well as some rambling along the way. So let me introduce myself, I'm Jack, and i fancy myself an amateur inventor. Throughout the day, I'm constantly dreaming up new ideas, and drawing out "how would this work if it existed" on paper. most of the time, thats where they stay. On paper...

 BUT once in a blue moon, I get off my lazy butt and take the initiative to build a basic model or prototype of the design. I never usually get very far off from that, but still, once in a while, I end up with a very nice finished product.

Take my land sailer for example:











  It's not a perfect vehicle, it still has duct-tape patches and damaged parts on it, but its still a decent sailer in my opinion. On a nice windy day, i can start to approach 20 on it, so it was definatley worth the trouble of making, and is probably my most successful project so far. I'm hoping to change that in the near future, and make my new creations even better than the current ones.

Here's another picture of the sailer. I managed to keep it stable gliding down a path on the coast, for about a mile. That is, until I crashed epically. It was still worth it though.

So that is all for now, I will keep updating hopefully as frequently as once or twice a week.

  4. Welcome :-) That one looks pretty nice. What have you used, a longboard or a classic skateboard? How did you dock it on the skate?

    If it's a regular skate, I'd like to try it on mine

  10. Looks pretty good, I saw a guy being pulled down the street on a skateboard by his dog, looked like a good idea, but then he got pulled into a no parking sign.
