Default Push Snowboarding at the Burton US Open

What's up everybody!

I'm Matt from Push Snowboarding, the project that uses the Nokia N8 and other sensors on your body and board to measure the speed, airtime, altitude and rush of your ride.



We were out at the Burton European Open in Laax in January where Burton team riders Tor Lundström, Kim Rune Hansen, Joachim Krogstie and Terje Haakonsen tested out the Push Snowboarding kit. Check the highlights vid: YouTube - Push Snowboarding - Highlights from the Burton European Open

We're super stoked that next week we'll be taking the kit to the Burton US Open for some of the team riders to test out — and even giving you a chance to test it out for yourself!

We'd love to hear your ideas for how you'd use the kit, or any advancements you think would work well. It's an open project, meaning your suggestions could shape its future. Our hope is that by working together we can enhance the sport in ways that matter to riders. Whether it leads to new ways of teaching snowboarding technique, or visualisations of your run, we're after ideas and input from the people who know the sport the best - snowboarders!

If you're headed to the Open be sure to come and find us in the Sponsor village, and if not we'll be posting updates here too!

Look forward to hearing your awesome ideas

Thanks,

Matt @ Push Snowboarding

What's up everyone!
Just getting ready to head to Vermont for the US Open, and wanted to share this video of a few precious moments we captured from our alpha tests in Austria. If anyone's headed out there, you can come try the kit!

Hi mbesp

Thanks for your comments!

Just to explain, the orientation meter measures the speed at which a rider turns or spins, not just how many degrees they have gone, so the meter will always be moving depending on the board. And the pressure meter shows pressure on your heels and toes, and can also measure airtime in milliseconds.

We’re constantly working to make the kit more reliable, smaller and more robust. The videos you’ve seen were from the first official alpha tests we held at the Burton European Open and we’ve been working on the kit and software since mid January, tightening everything up in preparation for the US Open next week! Check out the Push Snowboarding site for more videos and photos of the kit in action at the US Open.

If you’ve got any more questions, hit us up!

Thanks,

Matt @ Push Snowboarding

I have a question why do you feel it's OK to spam this forum?

What's up guys!
Just dropping in to say hi. We're all set up at the Burton US Open and ready for our first public showcase. It's dumping today and making it pretty hard to see or film much. We'll have some pics/videos from the event and testing from Stratton soon, but for now I wanted to show you guys this video of the kit in action — testing with Terje Haakonsen at The Arctic Challenge a couple weeks ago — so you can get a better idea of how it works at the moment.

We'd love to hear what you think!

Thanks, Matt

What's up!

Just dropping in to say that we've just released three new videos from our testing at the Burton US Open! We had a great trip out to Stratton Mountain. Everyone who came by the tent was really into what we were doing. Plus we also had some pretty special riders from the Burton Snowboard team using the kit!

First, we had TTR World #1 snowboarder Peetu Piironen use the kit on the US Open Slopestyle Course. Then Seppe Smits, TTR World #2, took the kit for a few spins on a freestyle run. And 14-year-old Burton team rider Tim-Kevin Ravnjak hit the US Open half-pipe for his debut Push Snowboarding ride.

We'd love to hear what you think about the videos!

Thanks
Matt

Hey everyone!

To follow up on the last videos I posted, we just released an awesome recap video of the Burton US Open. The video highlights what went down at the public launch of Push Snowboarding at Stratton Mountain, and you'll see the from the reactions and feed back from Burton team riders Peetu Piiroinen and Seppe Smits, a US Open judge and the public that people are excited about the technology!

Hope you like the video - we'd love to hear what you think!
