Capsule Skateboards – Reinvention of Skateboarding
Andreas Charalambous, CEO and Co-founder at Capsule Skateboards, introduces his gadget to BeFast.TV at Web Summit 2016 in Lisbon.
Name: Capsule Skateboards
Description: Capsule is the first company that restarts the evolution of skateboarding, by addressing the need of the skateboarder for a more durable, affordable, with attractive appearance skateboard and the need to experience his favorite activity through the new era of Internet of Things.
By configuring the mechanical properties of our material (flexural strength, tensile modulus) we created a novel skateboard able to absorb much higher impacts, thus protecting the skateboarder’s human joints. Furthermore, by introducing a sensor system that will optionally be attached on the skateboard with features like tracking a skaters’ performance, recording his progress and alerting him when he is reaching his body stress levels so to avoid being injured, we promote skateboarding experience to a new era.
