Building a digital coach - learn new skills and record your moves
 
1 Attachment(s)
Iíve been looking for a digital coach, something to install on my bike that could give me instant feedback on my riding and teach me new skills. Didnít find anything, so I built a prototype myself. My wife and I created this video describing the idea:

Basically, you put a bunch of sensors on your bike, your phone collects the data as you ride, and an app (not fully implemented yet) gives you real time feedback. Thoughts? Would you use it? Any other ideas on what it should do?

One fun bonus is you end up mapping MTB trails in pretty awesome detail: steepness, rockiness, drops, jumps, so you could check out new rides and find exactly what youíre looking for.

So thatís the idea. What do you guys think? Anyone interested in working with me on it?
