Signal Snowboards signature webseries ‘Every Third Thursday’ is back for its first installment of 2018 and this time the subscription based snowboard provider took on the challenge of installing addressable LED nodes into the base of snowboard:
“The future is upon us kids! Decentralized currency, hyper loop travel, and yes, smart wearables and shreddables. With flexible screens a real thing and tech getting smaller and more powerful it’s a safe bet that before too long you may be able to program your base! After almost a year off from the last ETT, No Board Left Behind, we bring you the first LED progammable base. This is first generation trial and error with basic materials. But, you know OLED and paper screens are coming, so why not have the base that changes with your every whim, favorite logo, or call out when you land that trick you were working on for a week.
Hit play and watch as we create and learn a few hard lessons along the way. With 1700 LED’s there’s about 1710 opportunities for us to screw this up. Enjoy!”
***if you’re wondering what I mean by subscription based snowboard provider take a look at how it works HERE.

Ribbons of LED's layed up in the base of the snowboard so delicatley aligned with a data wire and power wire, if those two were to cross ⚡BZZZ⚡….lights are dead. 💀 photo: @marc_wierenga – – – #signal_life #signalsnowboards #everythirdthursday #ETT #LED #snowboarding #snowboard #Mammothmountain #tech #technology #science #engineering
