First of all this is not really a hardware topic, but I love it anyway.

 

The brain is always way beyond my possibilities at creating.

 

Very accurate drawing? Maybe, but let’s not go into details!

 

 

The guy inside me is very excited. He considered.

Energy consumption?
Enormous Velocity?
How big should it be?
Should I be able to ride it?
Color?

A try with a zip ties and copper foil / spring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best was this soft skin made out of foam.
