Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSR360und is actually pronounced “Rebound”. This is a small rugged device that will map your location, the G-Forces you hit to the orientation of how you land. All this information is transferred via Bluetooth for you to see in an action video. It’s important to note that this is not a camera. R360und is a sensor that models your activity so you can find out what you did and how it looked. R3b0und works well with an action camera so you can record the journey and get the full stats, too! R360und is expected to be out by this summer. In the meantime, check out their website at www.r360und.com [cessponsor] Video by Nicholas DiMeo of F5 Live.
Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSLast year the guys at Zboard introduced the motorized skateboard. They are now back to show off what they have worked on for the last year. ZBoard uses weight distribution to control the skateboard. I got to ride one in San Francisco back in May and I can tell you – it’s not an easy thing to do (but you do get used to it over time). The ZBoard is $649 and available for pre-order. (zboardshop.com) [cessponsor] Video by Allante Sparks of F5 Live.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSBody Wave is a product that helps you increase mental capacity by using your mind in a different way. Brainwaves go through Bluetooth to control your devices. The crew at F5 Live had a fun interactive time at the BodyWave booth as they got to wear the device – which is no bigger than an iPhone (along with the sensors taped to your back). If you focused on specific items you could get them to move. If you were distracted you could even unintentionally move items. This is more of a concept piece, Freer Logic is looking to reduce the device so you can strap on and go. (www.freerlogic.com) [cessponsor] Video by Nicholas DiMeo of F5 Live.
