How can I ski like a tech bad boy?
To be honest, Gadget Guru is usually more of an après-ski man, who likes nothing better than to settle into a hot tub while swigging egg-nog and impersonating Demis Roussos.
However, he’s lately been hitting the slopes big-time, wearing Rossignol’s PIQ sensor (€149/£100, piq.com). This little fella slips into your boot and tracks things like edge-to-edge speed, G-force, carving angle/air time, rotation and more. Then, when you’re back at the lodge, downing a flaming sambuca and tucking into fondue, you can peruse your performance and challenge friends to beat your air time, turning excellence and, er, other skiing-related stuff. As noted, GaGu is more of an aprés guy.
The key thing here is your PIQ score. Rather like the Jawbone and MyZone on the previous page, this lets you prove exactly who is the King of the Black Run, using a number. Pow! Pow!
