This skateboard lights up differently depending on how hard you kick and push.

This skateboard lights up differently depending on how hard you kick and push. Using a microprocessor to interface with an accelerometer and led strips, the skateboard lights will be different depending on how fast you speed up and slow down. Long exposure photos of a skate session will be taken at night to achieve light painting with the skateboard.
