About

our goal is to make it easier to learn how to enjoy surfing for everyone. 

プロも、初心者も、観客も、誰もがサーフィンを楽しめる世界をjellysurfは目指しています。

but for people that don't surf, it is difficult for them to enjoy watching competitions. and it is more difficult  for people to start surfing on their own.  

2020年東京オリンピックで正式種目に選ばれたことで注目を集めるスポーツ、サーフィン。

けれどもサーフィンは道具や環境、何より乗り方と楽しみ方を知るのが難しいスポーツでもあります。


surfing is not just a sport but it also represents a lifestyle, and there is still more potential for surfers to express themselves.

サーフィンは単なるスポーツだけでなくライフスタイルでもあります。

競技だけでない、表現の場があっても良いのではないでしょうか?

it looks easy to surf but there is a fact that many people give up trying just once, given that it is difficult for beginners to stand on the board. in fact, I started with a shortboard and it took me nearly a year to stand up. I couldn't find anyone that could teach me how to surf, so I came up with the idea that what if the board had LEDs to teach me when to stand up. I realized my plans and came up with the prototype of jellyboard by attaching 120LEDs to my board.

また、サーフィンをやりたいと思い海に行った人たちはその難しさに驚くでしょう。

私自身もサーフィンを始めてから板の上に立てるようになるまで長い時間がかかりました。教えてくれる友人やコーチはおらず、板にライトがついていてピカッと教えてくれないかと考えました。

そうして作ったのが最初のプロトタイプです。

there are mainly two ways to use this product, performance and training. 

私たちのプロダクトは主に二つの使い道があります。パフォーマンスとトレーニングです。

the LEDs reacting to the movements detected by the sensors allow its riders to express themselves in new ways. it not only responds to the speed or turns but, it can change its colors when tricks are detected. 

板の動きや技をセンシングし光の色やパターンを変化させる事ができます。光による演出でサーフィンを知らない観客もどこで盛り上がれば良いかわかります。

using an app to control the LED colors it makes teaching someone easier and also it makes it possible for a single instructor to teach many people at the same time. we have future plans on developing an AI driven coaching app.

 遠隔で光を操作する事で遠くにいるサーファーにあらゆる指示を伝える事ができます。

一人のコーチが10人の生徒に同時に教えることも可能です。

将来的にAIによって自動で教えるシステムを開発することを考えています。

jellyboard is the first smart-surfboard ever made. 

jellyboardはセンサとLEDを備えたスマートサーフボードです。 

by using sensing technology, jellyboard is able to track the movements of the surfboard and show it visually by changing the colors of the LEDs. we wanted to give a transparency for the LEDs to glow so we came up with a way to 3D print it. this gives its riders a completely new way of expressing themselves on the waves.

 板の動きをセンシングし、光の色で乗っている人にそれを伝えます。

板全体に光を透過させるために、3Dプリントによって半透明なサーフボードを制作しました。

there are two modes of jellyboard, motion echo mode and color control mode.

jellyboardには、動きをトラッキングするモードと遠隔操作するモードがあります。

since jellyboard changes its colors responding to the movement of the board, you will feel more delighted to move your board while you surf. 

動きをトラッキングし光が変化するモードでは、波の上での動作や技を決めた時にこれまで以上の体験ができるでしょう。

it is possibble to control jellyboard's LED colors with the app. it is also possible for the change of colors to match with music and atmosphere. 

遠隔操作モードでは、自由に光の色やパターンを変える事ができ、音楽や周囲の雰囲気に合わせることも可能です。

surfing is making its Olympic debut in the coming Tokyo 2020 Olympics and we think this is a big opportunity. we are on our way of holding an exhibition and demonstrating jellyboard in an official side event.

サーフィンは東京オリンピックから正式種目となりました。

私たちは公式イベントとしてサーフィンのエキシビションを行えないかと考えています。 

 jellyheart is a gadget version of jellyboard. (the design may vary from the image.)

 jellyheartはjellyboardのガジェット版で、センシングと光でのフィードバックというまさに心臓部を備えたものです。

jellyheart makes it possible to track movements of any surfboard and control its LEDs by just sticking it on to your own board.

jellyheartはあなた自身のサーフボードに取り付けるだけで使用できます。サーフボードの動きをトラッキングし、光によってそれを伝えてくれます。 

we are jellysurf and we are a team of surfers who are scientists, designers, business planners and pro surfers together to make surfing enjoyable for everyone. by using the data collected from the users, we have a goal of scientifically unraveling surfing, and also bringing additional excitement to surfing as a sport. 

 私たちjellysurfはサーファーのチームです。サーフィンをもっと盛り上げるため、研究者、デザイナー、エンジニア、ビジネスプランナーが集まっています。

また製品で集めたデータからサーフィンの科学的解明を目指しています。

we are aiming to release jellyboard by the end of this year, along with a gadget version of the sensing technology, jellyheart. in the future we also have plans on updating our product with the provided data and releasing coaching applications for novice surfers. 

jellyboardの2019年内のリリースを目指して開発を進めています。 それに合わせてjellyheartもリリース予定です。

またそれ以降も製品のアップデートやコーチングアプリケーションの開発を予定しています。
