Making 3D Printed Skeleton for Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Researchers take the 3D scan of the athlete’s body while they’re on their sled. After scanning they print out high-tech skinsuits for athletes. This suit protects them from getting hurt.
Skeleton is a winter sport that involves riding a sled down an ice track whilst lying face down and head first.
Skeleton is a sport reserved for individuals rather than teams, and like Bobsleigh or Luge, participants are required to angle their bodies at the right times in certain ways to control the direction and speed of their sled. Skeleton has appeared at the Olympics on several occasions, including the last four games.:)
