Push Snowboarding | By Nokia And Burton

Nokia, in partnership with Burton, developed a monitoring system for snowboarders. The idea is to connect a series of sensors (heart rate, pressure on the board and orientation) to a Arduino processor, which then sends via Bluetooth, the acquired data to a Nokia N8, which records the entire performance (including the phone´s GPS path).  All this through a free application that can be downloaded from the Push Snowboarding web page. The Push Kit should be available soon. Watch the video after the jump.

FINGERSURFING

Fingersurfing is another fun project on Kickstarter. The idea, developed by two Danish surfer brothers was conceived on the backseat of a car during long surfing trips. The brothers passed time sticking their hand out the window and surfing the wind with different flat objects like pea pods under their fingers. They imitated surf moves and with time and experience became "pro finger surfers". The brothers have now took the concept and developed the model designs and...
