No need to hit the beach to surf, you can make your own waves with the YuJet Surfer electric jetboard

A design team comprising pro surfers and engineers has revealed its first product aimed at having eco-friendly fun on the water. The YuJet Surfer is an electric surfboard that’s said to bring “the power of a jetski to a surfboard.”

YuJet Surfer electric jetboard promises 40 minute ride at up to 24 mph

Surfboards able to propel themselves are nothing new, but they’re still not a particularly common sight at beaches, lakes or rivers. If you want to make your own waves without polluting the local environment with noise and fumes, you could opt for even more rare all-electric boards. But it’ll cost you a pretty penny – the recently announced Rävik S, for example, could set you back almost US$19,000. A new e-surfer from YuJet washes up at almost half that.

“We’ve worked for years to create a product that can propel powered water sports forward,” said YuJet’s co-founder, Jeremy Schneiderman. “Our first product to market, the YuJet Surfer, is the culmination of our passion, our experience, and our vision for the future. We wanted to make a product that was easy to ride for every skill level and could deliver the thrill of surfing in just minutes. We cannot wait for everyone to experience the excitement of the ride.”

The YuJet Surfer, like the Rävik S, rocks a carbon fiber hull with Eva grips and neoprene handles that helps it tip the scales at 20 lb (9 kg), with the battery removed. That lithium-ion battery is reported waterproof and could keep you on the water for up to 40 minutes per charge. An electric motor drives a jetski-like water jet for up to 24 mph (38.6 km/h) of relatively quiet, local emissions-free e-surfing.

The wireless controller with variable speed trigger offers beginner and rider performance modes, and YuJet reckons that learners can be up and riding on the water in as little as five minutes.

And when it’s time to head home, the fins and battery can be removed without needing tools. The company has aimed for minimal maintenance too, with a quick spray down with clean water all that’s needed to keep the e-surfboard looking sharp. Optional accessories include a replacement battery, battery charger and wheel set (to help roll the board to waiting transport on land).

The YuJet Surfer is available from today for US$9,999, which ain’t cheap. But if you have the cash to splash, it does look like fun – as you can see in the short video below.

Siren raises $11.8M for its limb-saving smart socks

Can a pair of socks help those with diabetes avoid foot amputations?

That’s one of the ideas behind Siren, a company that’s building smart, washable fabric wearables – the first of which is a pair of socks meant to help those with diabetes monitor their foot health and detect dangerous injuries early. They’ve just a raised $11.8 million Series B to help get it done.

The round was led by Anathem Ventures, and backed by Khosla, DCM, and Founders Fund. As part of the raise, DCM’s Jason Krikorian (co-founder of Slingbox maker Sling Media) will be joining Siren’s  board.

Siren co-founder Ran Ma tells me that amputations in patients with diabetes are largely the result of injuries that go undetected for too long. Over time, diabetes can cause nerve damage; when this nerve damage impacts the feet, patients can develop injuries and ulcers without noticing – out of sight, out of mind. Left untreated, these injuries can grow worse or become infected to the point that amputation is required. Tens of thousands of these amputations occur each year in the U.S. alone.

Siren’s socks help detect injuries that might otherwise go unnoticed by monitoring the temperature of six regions of the wearer’s foot. If one region seems to be getting considerably warmer than those around it, it could indicate ongoing inflammation caused by an injury. The socks can connect to the patient’s phone via Bluetooth to help them keep an eye on their feet – and, importantly, that information is beamed to their doctors who can keep an eye out for red flags.

That last bit is particularly key right now. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many are avoiding doctors offices and hospitals in fear of being exposed to the virus; meanwhile, many offices have been limiting their more routine/less urgent or “non-essential” appointments – including, in this case, routine foot exams. Siren’s socks let a patient’s doctors monitor their foot health from afar.

We first met Siren back in 2017 when the company won the TechCrunch Hardware Battlefield at CES. Since then, the company has raised around $22 million in funding; this $11.8 million Series B, a previously undisclosed $6.5 million Series A in 2018, and a $3.4 million seed round.

Ran tells me that they’ve made Siren Socks available in ten states so far, with plans to expand nationwide by the end of this year.

Xiaomi Mi Band 5: will have a special function to better control your health

For some weeks now, rumors and leaks with the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 as the protagonist have not stopped appearing. Several weeks ago we learned that the new edition of the Xiaomi smart bracelet was on the way, and everything indicates that its presentation will be held next June. In addition, we have already been able to know some details of its technical section, such as the inclusion of NFC in the global variant, which will allow all users of the bracelet to make mobile payments.

Xiaomi Mi Band 5: will have a special function to better control your health

Now, just a few hours after having been able to see the first supposedly real images of this Mi Band 5, new information from the TizenHelp portal, which is echoed in the official Xiaomi forum itself, reveals that the new bracelet would have a function designed to better control the health of users based on the PAI system.

Xiaomi Mi Band 5 would have an integrated “PAI” function, what does it mean?

Those who are not too familiar with the “PAI” concept should know that it is a monitoring technology that allows controlling a person’s health status through a series of factors, which serve to generate a “score”, backed by various scientific studies and research. According to these investigations, those people capable of maintaining a PAI score greater than 100 points, can extend their life by up to 5 years by reducing the risk of contracting cardiovascular diseases by up to 25%.

According to the company that developed this system, PAI is based on an individual profile that takes the heart rate data collected during the day to generate a score. This score will be based on data collected over a 7 day period. And although the score of 100 is the objective that every person should set, they explain that 50 PAI is a good starting point, since this score would imply enjoying 60% of the health benefits that are pursued with this technology.

Our 3rd-Generation system features 14 sensors – one for every club in your bag – and access to the award winning Arccos Caddie app, golf’s Smartest Caddie featuring:
