This paper introduces an interactive snowboard concept, Motion Echo Snowboard, which provides visually augmented feedback for body movements during snowboarding. The proposed system augments the user experience with a real-time visual display of performer weight distribution on the upper side of the snowboard. We conducted two user studies: an individual usage and a lesson situation. Based on the results, we confirmed that the Motion Echo Snowboard concept could enhance movement perception and motivation as being the starting point for exploring body movement in both situations. Moreover, it could generate new behavior patterns and could establish student-instructor trust as a medium of movement during lessons.

This is kind of researching purpose work of how can we use information of body movement in our "actual sporting experience" in view point of interaction design. As you see the video, there were certain limitations (sight problem and so on). So it was the purpose of figuring out the pros and cons of providing augmenting feedback on your snowboard. Please do not take this as so serious. it's just a one research trial and not for commercial product.
