Splinter, the high-performance wooden supercar

Splinter was conceived, designed, and built by North Carolina State University graduate student Joe Harmon and his talented team in Joe's backyard shop in Durham, North Carolina. Talking to Joe, you get the impression that he has heard the skeptical termite taunts and canoe comparisons before. And that he understands the best way to disarm critics is with his half-smile and a just-the-facts recitation of his creation's statistics. (See stats, next slide.) With an estimated weight slightly greater than a Cooper Mini and a projected top speed faster than a Porsche, Ferrari, or Lamborghini, this car will fly. And aside from the engine, transaxle, and a few connecting parts, the car is made completely of wood.
