If I remember right, a forum members has been working on boards similar to
Curvaboard (see below).
Does someone remember it?

I remember when McC posted the Curva Board as a curiosity. Don't think anybody was working on something similar though.

Closest thing I can think of was Eric Briner's large center wheel and 4 smaller outer wheels with independent suspension. But it is nothing like the Curva.

I was focusing on the center wheel(s) concept.

I do not believe Flexzboards forgot about Jimmys rigs. I do not believe anybody from the early days has.
