If you are a sailor, surfer, climber, scientists or weather enthusiast you might be interested in a small device called the Vaavud Wind Meter that transforms your smartphone into a meteorological toolkit.
The Vaavud Wind Meter supports iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, HTC One and Google Nexus 5 and can be seen in actio after the jump.
The Vaavud Wind Meter Kickstarter campaign featured in the video has now finished its Kickstarter campaign but is still available to purchase in a range of three colours for €45 directly from the Vaavud website. Its creators explain a little more:
“The Vaavud design is inspired by professional cup anemometers, but with two cups instead of three, in order to make it truly pocket friendly. The one piece, molded rotor and the low friction Teflon bearing makes the Vaavud wind meter extremely durable. If sand or dirt gets inside the Vaavud wind meter it can easily be cleaned out with water. And The Vaavud wind meter can take quite a beating – it is built for action!
The Vaavud app gives you a clear overview of average, actual and maximum wind speed, as well as a real time graph – in fact the first real time graph in the world on a hand held anemometer! And you can scroll and pinch-zoom on the graph, if you want to taker a closer look at something.”
