to be honest i hadnt, i but with this developing in the way it has i have been playing around with different shapes, with 3d printing so cheap, and the added bonus of the magnetic field that will support the weight will also act like a pillow, in other words, there will be no point that the riders weight will cause a critical failure of the top board because the bubble supports the board equally, that in turn means that boards can be made thinner, havent done any actual testing yet but from what ive seen so far everything would indicate that if you filled a bag with a viscous liquid and placed a board on the bag, the magnetic bubble would support the board i the same way that the bag of liquid would the object, as far as the long board suggestion, absolutely.I wonder if there is a longboard design in your work that you could sell without the magnets part. The transparent board and 2-story deign work so well, and with longboards, you don't have to worry about scratches from tricks. Have you considered making some longboards for general sale without the magnetic floating effect?
EDIT/ADD -- I would probably buy one for my son as a gift (he's a longboarder at 22 y/o)
