Bounties attract serious brainpower to the challenge.
The idea backstory
- Bugatti Veyron acceleration from 1-100 kph 2.3 s - 1.2 G
- Deceleration from 173 km/h to zero in a distance of about 0.66 m - 180 G
- Space Shuttle launching and re-entry - 3 G
- Roller Coasters - up to 6.3 G
- Average passing out limit - 5 G
- Death and serious injury - 50 G
- Fighter Jet flight - up to 9 G
The idea itself
- high-speed racing could be turn therapeutical if only fast accelerations anddecellerations were considered
- roller-coasters with less curves and more up's and down's could be beneficial
- trampoline arena's should be promoted as health experiences, but special caution is needed in order to prevent injuries
- gyms and therapeutic centres could implement g-force rooms where users could experience short space-fligh G forces
Problems to consider
Not just osteoporosis but other diseases involving hormonal imbalances, too
