Although I have not yet picked an idea for the final project, I have several inspirations that will help me pick a final idea. I want to make something that I can actually use and have it function in a way that solves a problem I have. The inspirations I have are related to outdoor recreation, knowing that I want to go into an industry that involves outdoor recreation. Two things come to mind: soccer and snowboarding. I have been playing soccer ever since I was four and have been snowboarding since I was twelve (I skied from age four to twelve). Even though I have been doing these two activities for many years, I have not really played soccer competitively since high school so I think a snowboarding related project would be more beneficial to me. Some ideas for the project include attachments to the actual snowboard, bindings or snowboard gear that I wear (snowboarding boots, ski pants, ski jacket, helmet, goggles). Ultimately, I want this project to enhance my overall snowboarding experience.
