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 ***

For people that participate in this sport, money is not really an issue, certainly not for the majority anyway, and to achieve what you are doing, you need to cut costs so significantly that you would make a loss, no matter what you come up with...
Step in bindings already exist, just look up FLOW to start with, they are step in bindings... Very simple, for use anyway, very comfortable, proven to work, and about 4 times what you are hoping to achieve in terms of cost, and as there is not actually that much profit in hardware does that not answer the cost issue...
3rdly, NO ONE CARES...!
Even if you could come up with something, even half decent, it would never take off, budget is budget for a reason... That is normally cos it's crap... And my life is worth $300 for a set of bindings over an $80 set that in all honesty would be seriously inferior for that money...!!!
