The Flaik Armband Tracks Your Airtime on the Ski Slopes

The Flaik armband promises to maximize your bragging rights on the ski slopes by recording jump airtime using a GPS system embedded in an armband. It can also keep tabs on measuring speed, distance, and altitude-data that is automatically uploaded to Flaik servers and can be accessed anytime via a web-enabled device. There is even a social and safety component included in the system that will allow you to track friends and their stats and receive SMS messages when you wander beyond the resorts boundaries. The Flaik armband managed to nab this year's Australian International Design Award, but there is no word yet on when we might see it in production.
