The first rule of the forum should really be "thou shall not bring up step in bindings or you shall be fed to the dogs" but damn it if it isn't always entertaining to watch.

OK so I've said my mind and now I'll try to be constructive for you.

You'll need to design some sort of fast adjustable channel system to be able to adjust the width of the bindings mounted to the board. As you know every persons stance width is different. With this premise you will also need to be able to adjust the angles. In-Toe & Out-Toe vary greatly and will need to be able to have adjustments.

Clam Shell? this may be a good exercise in engineering to design a way to step down on the binding and have it clamp around the boot to secure it. This will also need to be adjustable to account for differing boot widths and bulky boots. The adjustment will increase/decrease the pressure to secure the boot. Not sure how this would hold in real resort conditions but as you mentioned: golf courses, sledding hills, back yards etc...who knows

There are a ton of adjustability and unknowns that need to be considered here for this to work with the general population. IMO you may have picked a topic that requires way more research, design, and marketing that could ever make it a practical item. This is a academic project with no real world implications and many many assumptions. I think you should run with it.

*** Maybe take the time to read the rules and post a pic you in the engineering lab or physics lab at your college. You and your buddies riding snowboards, maybe crashing maybe pulling off some sweet trick off the park jumps. Just saying, make your plea to those that see you as a fellow rider not a troll looking for easy answers ***
