Samsung Galaxy Surfboard: An Unnecessary Invention
It seems after the invention of smartphones, smartwatch, VR all technology companies are facing shortage of innovative ideas. So, these companies are chasing what comes after these gadgets. Is it an internet-connected surfboard? Samsung thinks so. Yes, Samsung Brazil has created a wild Samsung Galaxy Surf Board concept. Samsung Brazil has created Surfboard featuring Brazilian surfer Gabriel Medina.
Many surfers such as John Bristow made sarcastic comment “Why? Why do we need this? Seriously,” he wrote. Same question is being asked by plenty of others.
But Samsung says the concept is aimed at professional surfers who spend hours alone in the ocean.
“Unlike other sports, in professional surfing, the athletes are away from the fans from their country almost the entire year. Even during practice, surfers spend hours out at sea, while their coaches are on the shore. These distances are obstacles to the athletes’ evolution and motivation,” said Marcelo Reis of Leo Burnett.
“More than supporting athletes, we want to provide them with solutions. The board offers this innovative look at a solitary sport,” added Samsung’s Loredana Sarcinella.
