Theo Watson and Emily Gobeille of Design I/O have created an app that can visualize skateboard action in real-time. The prototype app, Skataviz, utilizes the iPhone’s gyroscope and accelerometer to map out the path of movement.

The data collected is sent to openFrameworks to create an augmented reality overlay of the board. Watsom and Emily Gobeille hired professional skaters Frankie Nash and Thomas Kramer to test out the software. The app was able to successfully track the kinetic movements of various tricks and stunts, such as how the skateboard traveled and its rotational movement in mid-air.

Watch the video below to see a demonstration of Skataviz:
