Concept

boardsport AR training tool. Simboard uses the property of Gyroscopic Procision to give the user the ability to pivot in 360.

Simboard is a low inpact, build it yourself balance board system. In order to simulate the transitional force of a wave a centrifugal flywheel is integrated into the base so the user can direct and pivot off this angular momentum.

A goal in Simboard is to use a combination of off the shelf and rapid manufactured parts; 3D printed carbon fiber, laser cut aluminum and steel. Similar to a drone build with a low barrier of enrty.

As a simple boilder plate for iteration we are exploring optinons for on chip AI systems such as SensorTile and or other edge / cloud enabled chips such as the Particle Argon or AZ3166 IoT
