Push goes super futuristic

It’s amazing what you can do with a little creative genius, some external sensors and a Nokia N8. Some of the ideas and creations that followers of the Push Snowboarding project have come up with are testament to that. Read on for the low down of a few of our favourite interpretations of the datasets from some of the world’s best snowboarders.

First up is Zoho Lab’s interactive video player/scrubber that showcases the data the Push Snowboarding kit has captured during a run which allows you to see a spike in the data and move the video cursor to see exactly what caused it! Click the image below to see how it works for yourself.

Daniel McLaren created a great animated visualisation that mashes up the Push Snowboarding data with a map, tracking the riders’ runs using GPS, speed, heart rate and airtime data right over the top of it.

Another favourite interpretation was created by Signal Noise. Check out the futuristic digital floating data display they’ve developed below and see a video of it in action.

All sorts of other amazing ideas have been created using the Push Snowboarding datasets and application source code and were showcased at the Burton US Open a few weeks ago. From the Wired UK app idea competition winners and Creative Review competition winner to a whole host of ideas from other members of the Push Snowboarding community.

Which of the interpretations is your favourite? Let us know in the comments below!
