alright converse! I don’t even skateboard, but this is still really sick!!
Rec Deck: Future product concept for Converse…
A study of the Converse brand showed how their products unite the youth in energetic expression and creative rebellion. Rec Deck builds on this idea by bringing people together in a very real and tangible way, uniting their dynamic and creative personalities and having loads of fun at the same time.
This carbon fibre skateboard boasts six high-speed cameras mounted inside the trucks to capture skate footage from an entirely new perspective. Since skateboarding tricks are all about the movement and rotation of the board, these cameras will capture every flip and spin in a way that has never been seen before. The underside of the deck also doubles up as a touch screen, so stunning videos can be edited together using footage from each of the six cameras.
Rec Deck uses technology in a Converse way, bringing people into the street where they can get their adrenaline pumping while capturing great skate footage. I then allows them to get creative and produce stunning videos from the six cameras, adding slow motion replays, dropping in soundtracks and so on. The finished videos can then be watched, shared and kept as a reminder of the rebellious days.
