Samsung Galaxy Surfboard could be the most ridiculous invention ever

There’s no denying that the Samsung Galaxy Surfboard is innovative – but it still looks ridiculous.

Yes, Samsung has actually created a “smart” surfboard powered that feeds surfers information on the fly. It’s powered by a Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone that’s tucked away in a secret compartment, and has a built-in display that reels off tweets. Because who doesn’t want to trawl Twitter while surfing, right?

Samsung Brazil even shot a video of renowned surfer Gabriel Medina giving the Galaxy Surfboard a trial run, which you can check out below:

“The Galaxy Surfboard is a board that has a Samsung smartphone as its technological heart, allowing the world champion Gabriel Medina to receive technical instructions during training in real-time,” Samsung explains. “And to motivate you even more, the board can also receive messages of encouragement from the crowd via hashtags.”

But if you’re keen to bag a Galaxy Surfboard, it might not be that easy. Samsung hasn’t announced any plans to sell the device, which suggests it may just be a conceptual prototype – and that’s probably for the best.

The stupidest invention I've ever seen is 3D Touch by Apple (ha). In al seriousness though, this is just ridiculous.

That is because you have never really tried 3D Touch (ha) :) It is quite fascinating but enough about relevant inventions.

This surfboard is interesting and useful for whoever finds it useful. Like all other innovations ;)
