In our research for the Future Of Gaming report, the PSFK consulting team explored the ways developers are making their games compelling and accessible to a wider audience. One example of innovation in Game Functionality And Systems is ‘Push Snowboarding‘. Finnish multi-national communications company Nokia and US snowboarding manufacturer Burton collaborated on ‘Push Snowboarding,’ a project that incorporates Nokia’s sensor technology into a Burton snowboard and platform for real-time performance capture and readout. Utilizing Nokia’s N8 smartphone GPS technology to measure altitude, speed and metrics collected from 5 other sensors on the board and boots, the Push Snowboarding app provides riders 5 readouts: speed, heart rate, orientation, foot pressure and the ‘rush’ of the ride. Push Snowboarding is still in its trial phase, but is expected for general consumption soon.
