There’s a new innovation in ice hockey that the inventor believes will “revolutionize the game of hockey.”
Called “Thermoblades” it’s a new type of hockey skate that uses rechargeable batteries and computer microprocessors to heat the skate blades.
The result is a thicker layer of water between the blade and the ice surface, which reduces friction and increases skating speed.
Four NHL players have been anonymously testing them in game conditions. The product launch was at the Hockey Hall of Fame, and the projected cost of the skates will be $400 Canadian.
This innovation is, quite simply, a technological shortcut to a performance advantage. Those with Thermoblades will get a speed-boost versus those with traditional skates.
