Whiz kid invents snow machine

‘While most kids spend free time with their Xbox 360s and Guitar Hero games, this 10-year-old whiz kid was busy inventing a snow machine.

Austinites haven’t seen much snow through the winter season; perhaps individuals seeking a fun slide down a hoary hill should turn to this young genius in West Linn, Oregon.

Pearson, using a 30 gallon air compressor he received for Christmas, a pressure washer, and loads of research, created his own backyard ski resort. [..]

“We’re past toys, we’re into air compressors and spray nozzles,” said Pearson’s mother.

The nozzle on his concoction sprays out a perfect powder. His machine is so efficient that it produced the astounding three feet of snow overnight.’
