Ok, awesome idea here, what would it take to do the following?
I want to make a board that doesn’t use a remote, instead it just adds a tiny bit of boost anytime it senses acceleration.
The purpose is a board that acts mostly like a normal longboard for cruising around, but that would let you pump much further and with less effort. It wouldn’t take you over speeds you couldn’t get to under your own power, and it would only boost you if it felt you accelerating the board on your own.
I suppose it would accelerate anytime you used your foot on the ground to push, anytime you used carving to pump, or anytime you went downhill.
Maybe we could machine learning train it to recognize the acceleration patterns of pumping as distinct from hills/foot pushing/wind/etc, so that it only boosts you when pumping, which is the most fun anyway.
