Yet another application of Intel Curie is potentially set to revolutionise how we view extreme bike sports like BMXing.
By attaching a number of Curie devices to a BMX a research team was able to use the chips’ motion-tracking sensors to recognise what tricks are being performed.
The information can also be instantly relayed to either the audience or potentially judges too where they can read just what moved and by how much, including separate readings for the rider, the bike and the handlebars, as well as things like air time and spin speed.
Not only is it just quite cool to have all that information to hand, it could also be useful for judging competitions, adding an element of objectivity to the scoring.
