Seriously though, I am hesitant to get into split boarding as there is not a quick eject in the event of an avalanche. It would be hard to do even with skis, but at least you would improve your changes of not getting dragged under.
Do we think the technology will allow for this in the future?
At this stage I would take snowshoes or just ski.
you're better off with an airbag backpack and good avy sense than something that could leave you with one foot left in a binding while the other foot releases. i'd way rather have both feet strapped in and anchoring me but still having the chance to ride it out than have one foot strapped in, no ability to ride the slide out aggressively, and my snowboard and my strapped in knee wrapped around the back of my head.
