Snowboarding for Floridians

Virtual snowboard VR3d Snowboard Blitz

Maybe this will inspire the next Olympic athlete. Can't you just see it, a Cool Runnings for the Tony Hawk set?

The VR3D Snowboard Blitz comes with a snowboard, wireless headset, and earbuds. The one 9-volt and three AAA batteries needed to operate the game are included. There are different levels of play, depending on how good you get maneuvering your balance on the board, as well as scoring and timekeeping.

The virtual snowboard is available for $40 from your grandfather's gadget blog: the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog.
