It’s a collection of my observations and notes based on my experience while working on mobile projects. Most of the examples are based on the iOS but the points are easily applicable on any mobile platforms. Enjoy and please feel free to drop me comments, I welcome all feedback.
Nokia’s Push project has been exploring sensor integration with skateboards. The project has now evolved into a collaboration with Burton Snowboards whereby similar motion data collected by the senors will be pushed wirelessly to Nokia phones carried by the snowboarder.
Very intriguing to consider the potential for a platform like this and how the data generated by the snowboarder can be visualized and analyzed for performance.
"What if everything around you
Isn’t quite as it seems?
What if all the world you used to know
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection
Is it all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks
Would you find yourself…
Find yourself afraid to see?"
