Snowboarder Zooms Across Frozen Lake Using Powerful Jet Engine-Like Thrusters

British snowboarder Jamie Barrow uses handheld electric thrusters from dreamscience Propulsion to reach great speeds while zooming across a frozen lake in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The thrusters function in much the same way as jet engines by rotating fans at around 30,000 RPM to produce a narrow column of air that propels it. More on the thrusters and filming of Barrow is available at dreamscience Propulsion’s website.
