Ooooh interesting.

Would be cool if all the PIQs talked to each other, so whoever did the biggest jump (at your local beach) their board would flash red or something. Then if you beat their jump yours would flash.

Thats a good idea! That could be done using Zigbee or similar smart home networking and for once, you dont have to worry about space for the antenna - the board can take that in between the laminates.

You could go further and use the network for tracking...
