A New Gadget For Board Riders

This week, my friends and I can’t seem to stop talking about this new gadget for our ripple boards! It’s a device that attaches to their skateboard, surfboard, snowboard, wave board, or ripple board and it measures almost everything about the way you ride. It tells you how fast you’re going, how many calories you burned, the distance you covered, total air time, the duration of your riding session, and even the tricks and rotations that you did!

Naturally, this device is shock and waterproof. Yes, I know this sounds too good to be true, but it’s real and it’s really being developed as of the moment.

skateboardIf you’re wondering  just how such a device could be made possible, the answer is sensors, Bluetooth, and GPS. What’s even more amazing in my opinion, is the inventors are a father and son duo.  According to Anatole Lokshin  and his son David Lokshin, this new device is an extension of what they invented before that’s used to measure skiing and snowboarding metrics.

Unlike them, I don’t have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering so I can’t really get too excited about how this device canactually do all those things. I am, however, a ripple boarder and I can’t wait to know more about my personal style and endurance when it comes to my chosen sport.
