Mobile-Connected Snowboards Turn Extreme Sports Into A Game

Share

SEPTEMBER 23, 2010

Nokia Push Burton

Beginning in 2009, Nokia’s Push project has been working on a small scale to integrate sensors onto skateboards, collecting motion data about tricks and movements the skater is making while riding. Running on a platform built byHyper London, this data is pushed wirelessly to a Nokia phone carried by the rider, where individual tricks are collected, analyzed, scored, and potentially tracked onto a game-like interface. Nokia is now working with Burton Snowboards to produce this platform on a larger scale to turn snowboarding sessions into connected games.

Nokia explains the project below:

Nokia Push will be collaborating with the world’s biggest snowboarding company, Burton Snowboards, to create a new type of connected snowboarding. Work has already started between Nokia and Burton, and the collaboration will be run in the spirit of the Push project – transparently, and openly in beta. Throughout this time, regular videos will be published here detailing our progress so far, and counting down to our alpha launch at next year’s Burton Euro Open in January.

Those giant screws sticking out of the base will probably make the board handle well.LOL
Bring it hard or don't bring it at all.

It's cool I guess, but I snowboard to get away from technology.

Don't think it will take off. It's good to advanced things and think of new ideas though . I just look at other mainstream sports and they still keep it basic with no tech.

I don't see it taking off except for maybe expert and pros wanting to have a competition between peers because points is based off from what doing big tricks.
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.

Really cool technology but you know that when somethings really cool and blows your mind, the price will just kick your dreams in the balls....

1) it will be expensive
2) how will it know what you're doing? other than going invert.... how will it know 'you just 50-50'd a rail' or backside/frontside, or how you mounted a box/rail.... or if you grabbed or not, or if you tweeeeeaked your move, or if you did it in 80's clothes or in true swagger.

seems like a neat idea... but not everyone's cup of tea, and I'm especially sure the price tag will be a huge turn off for the average person.

every advancement has always started with a ridiculous idea (was quoted from Grey's anatomy, which was probably stolen from someone else). I do agree though that this seems like a stupid one at that, but the possibility of seeing how it works and what not may be somehow linked with that gps goggle Wink

Next thing you need is a mobile entertainment system with you while your boarding too
