Yay I ruined my break today fucking awesome!
Nick here again with another kickstarter find. Today this find particularly interest me, as I am a skateboarder myself and see the potential behind this product.
Pivot is an open source, motion tracking, Arduino based board that when attached to your skateboard can track foot placement and board rotation. Being open source and able to connect to mobile devices, the possibilities for practical and fun applications for skateboarders are endless.
The idea that I could play a game of S.K.A.T.E with my friend in Kansas, or share that I finally mastered the Kickflip with a network of friends is just the beginning. Pivot could turn your board in to a video game controller or even the paintbrush for digital art creations.
I hope this innovative product continues to receive support and continues to evolve, I know I will be backing it!
