World of Warcraft Engineers.. and Northrend Skiing

So, I just added a post to the suggestion forums...

This was the content.

Northrend has a ton of snow, and great mountains waiting to be tamed by.....


So, how about we let Engineers make Ski's and Ski Poles.

These would be usable only on snow or ice surfaces. Maybe restricted to Ice Crown, Storm Peaks, Grizzly Hills, and Sholazar Basin, and Northern Howling Fjord.

1 schematics would be available to both Gnomish and Goblin Engineers...

Gnomish Engineers

If Engineer uses launch may be higher...

( 4 x Froststeel Tube, 4 x Borean Leather, 2 x Walnut Stock, 2 x Handful of Cobalt Bolts)

Goblin Engineers

If Engineer, speed is slightly faster....

( 2 x Volatile Blasting Trigger, 1 Handful of Cobalt Bolts, 2 x Overcharged Capacitor, 4 x Cobalt Bars)

These would be sell, and give engineers another way to generate gold.

Morgh (Deathwing) - Grand Master Engineer in Training.

If you think this a great idea, lets get some posts going!

Rubik's TouchCube

This is a great upgrade to the original Rubik's Cube.

The Rubik's TouchCube, it's sides are touchscreen's that are touch sensitive, so all you need to do is swipe and it moves the panels.

If you made a mistake, you can make it to go back or undo a few moves. It also has the ability to help you if you are stumped. You can also re-scramble the cube by hitting a button. It can teach you how to play, or solve itself while you watch!

The Rubik's TouchCube will hit shelves this fall for $149.99. A lot more expensive then the original Rubik's Cube, but it does have a lot more functionality!

It was featured on Discovery Channel's Daily Planet on April 14th 2009. Video is available here.
