Technology takes all kinds of twists and turns. Ideas and concepts are coming to life at the hand of creators who push their ideas to the limit. The dudes over at Signal Snowboards have come up with another great snowboard design idea. They have come up with some pretty cool ideas in the past including a snowboard made of glass and another one with a working iPad embedded in the face.
The latest project involves a collaboration with GROWit to come up with something cool. They were able to put together the world’s first 3D printed snowboard. The Connex500 printer printed the board in pieces and it had to be put together like a puzzle. After construction, it was reinforced with metal strips for stiffness. After the boards were completed, the Signal crew took them for a spin on some fresh Colorado powder. Check the video after the jump to see how the 3D board did. Let us know what you think.
