Nokia PUSH and Burton to create connected snowboarding
Stuart Wells of Nokia's PUSH project explains that the process includes a myriad of sensors which will contribute to data that can be used by developers. End users might be able to use such technology to show off their achievements, evaluate their technique, or even fine-tune their riding setup.
The collaboration with Burton is inspired by the skateboarding version of the project, 'Solderin' Skaters', in which sensors are mounted in between the deck and the trucks (axles) in order to map the board's movements.
The launch of the beta is expected at next January's Burton Euro Open, and regular updates will be available at Nokia's PUSH blog.
