New Kickstarter video for LED Snowboard

Hi, guys. We just posted a shiny new video on Kickstarter for LED Snowboard - our color-changing, motion-controlled lighting kit you can put on any board.

Go to Kickstarter.com and search for LED Snowboard.

We're trying to get enough money for our first production run. We'd love to have your support!

I was gonna say why...? But after seeing the video, maybe why not? If the LEDs are one day integrated into the base, imagine the kind advertising we can shove in people's throats as the pros do jumps. Even today, if you sync them up with PoVs, you might be able to write banners in the dark.

Have you considered protection from condensation? Also, how's the battery holding up in the cold?

Maybe the control module can be made thinner/sleeker with more advanced batteries and smt.

What about controlling the pattern via music through Bluetooth from a phone?

Very neat concept!!

not really a new idea at all it was a bad idea the last few times why would this time be different?

At least the disco-stick Xero boards put the LEDs IN the base. But that is a bad idea, too.

How much money do you need to put this idea in motion? And how much money/capital are you personally contributing towards this idea?

Why do you think that? Every time we took it out for testing, everyone loved it especially when going through the terrain parks. The board reacts to every movement... Not all the modes are "rainbowy"... it can be programmed to do anything.

I'm going to tell you right now, walk away and save yourself the time/headaches/money. Your idea is fucking retarded.

Each time we build a new prototype, it gets smaller. Right now we are down to very small SMT parts and there is not a whole lot of space inside. We are looking into a removable battery design where you can choose to wear the battery on the hiback or belt... The battery is pretty much all of the 1lbs of weight and most of the size. We could reduce the size of it, but then you loose run time (currently 6 hrs) The system is totally waterproof. The circuit board is encased in potting so even if water gets in the box it wont do anything... We threw it in a pool a few nights ago to make that video and it sat on the bottom for a few minutes and never failed. We are also going to experiment with POV to see if it is possible.. I think it will be. Have not looked into syncing with music... that is a cool idea.

Every time we have taken it out, we have had to give out hundreds of business cards. There is a lot of interest.
