Aerodynamic Ski Backpack

April 5, 2006

emma.jpg NASA rocket scientist Charles Bienz has designed an ultra aerodynamic backpack that will allow downhill skier Henry Egger to reach speeds of around 120mph. The backpack, affectionately referred to as "Emma", is an "optimized shell" made from Kevlar and carbon fiber that keeps Henry in an "aerodynamically ideal position." Emma was tailor-made for Henry Egger after mapping out his body with lasers, and it weighs around 26 pounds. When not on the ski slopes, Emma transforms into a red 18 wheeler, allowing Henry to easily "roll out."
