i once went on a field trip to an engineering place...and i asked an engineer about it. and he said it would be crazy expensive, and theyd have to make different ones for people of different weights (but maybe if you enter your weight it could adjust the power of the magnet??), and thered be like "air pockets" where the board would like dip down? but then he got kind of obsessed and began to frantically design it on a 3D program XD. hahah. anyway, it seems kinda impossible--for now. i do think it would work in the future, once more magnet stuff is figured out.
i love magnets. theyre so cool >_>.
