The World's Most Technologically Advanced Surfboard



Two companies called Pukas and Tecnalia built a surfboard with a gyroscope, an accelerometer, a GPS tracking device, a compass, and pressure sensors that can measure the stresses placed upon the board. All of the data that these instruments collect is wirelessly transmitted to a computer for analysis. The technicians have been able to understand the strains and dynamics of surfing greater than ever before.
