Far safer (because greater wheel contact area = superior control) than the sport which inspired the suit's invention:

Can you say pelvic and lower spine fractures? Compression foot, leg, knee fractures? Concussions?

I also noted, the 'wheel contact area' was negligible, as the wheels as observed weren't often in contact with anything other than the luge itself!

Remind us why LL is NOT BoB's 'safety director' Twisted Evil

Street luge looked boring compared to Roborollerskate... Maybe more difficult but didn't look as fun.

As for roborollerskate, I'd have done it 70lbs ago.. lol... I'd do it now but I'd have to be jacked up like a 4 wheel drive to keep the ole belly from dragging.... lol

Has to be a gimmick of some kind. You can actually become part of a circuit in some circumstances without being shocked as long as you aren't grounded, the electricity will pass over and through you without harm ... don't try this at home however.
