Signal Snowboards has produced what must be one of the most unique Steve Jobs tributes I have ever seen: The iShred – a snowboard with Apple-like aluminum unibody design, a build in iPad 2, and an Apple-esque glowing Wi-Fi beacon.
Carefully crafted to match the spirit of Apple’s designs, this board sure does look amazing, but how well does it perform? According to the Signal guys, not too bad: “First run was awesome, the things like a missile. It doesn’t like to turn, but it’s pretty fast and heavy.”
Signal makes a custom snowboard every week as part of a video series called “Every Third Thursday. When asked about this particular board, Signal said they wanted to honor “the man who inspired and built products that almost every snowboarder we know loves and uses in their daily lives.”
There isn’t much point to building an iPad into a snowboard, other than the bragging rights of having done so (or as a tribute, as in this case). Still, it’s pretty awesome. Check out the below video to see their clip about the iShred:
