you need to take a third year of college physics before you talk my friend, and i dont think you even understood his idea either.

not saying this would or woudlnt work, and not saying this is or isnt a good idea. but here are some facts.
1. you could use electromagnets, they are not that heavy (no more then a binding) and could be used to bind the skier to the ski along with a ski to/off a rail
2. there easily is enough technology out there where you could make an inteligent bind system (price bing irrelivent) you could put pressure sensors in a boot, a small processor, and an electormagnet in the heel and toe. When pressure in a combinations is detected (ankle being twisted, boots being pulled in opposite directions, i dont know) the boot would sense the distinctive pressures and disengage the electromagnets. all you would need is two metal plates on the ski for the magnets to attach to, either on top of or in the middle of the ski.
3. im not sure how it could pertain to rails or jibs but you could have the center of the ski chared one way, the jib charged oppositly, and tips of the ski the same as the rail, so that the ski would stay centtered on the rail and you wont fall off. however that would Increase the friction, seing as friction is directly proprotioal to weight. so maybe a non charged center, charged tips, and charged jib would center you on the rail. idk its very technical and a bit excessive, but hey the sport has to go somwhere.
my 2 cents. now bring the hate allen, you always do.
you guys bashing can't read.
"Im not saying I am agreeing with it" right in the orgional post. the idea just came to my head and I thought about what could happen with it. Chill. By no means is this realistic or going to happen any time soon.
