Wow, how cool is that! With speedClock, you can turn your iPhone into a speed measuring gun just like the one used by cops sitting around the corner ready to hand you a speeding ticket. The app detects motion using your device’s camera and is only compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G running iOS4. All you need to do is to hold up the iPhone towards the moving object and it detects the speed automatically. The app also has a motion controlled timer and a distance estimation tool.
Main Features Of speedClock:
Easily measure the speed of cars, boats, skaters, skiers, cyclists, running dogs, model cars, footballs, etc, etc.
Uses the camera to detect and analyze motion: Set the distance to the object you want to measure. Hold the iPhone still and let the object pass over the the screen. The speed is automatically displayed. The sensitivity setting let you adjust it for different situations like large or small objects, background motion etc.
Uses motion detection to start and stop a timer. Useful for timing laps of runners, cars, motorcycles, horses etc. Or to track repetitions during workout.
Uses the angle of the iPhone to estimate the distance to a point on the ground. Hold the iPhone in front of you, align the point in the camera and get a direct reading of the distance. The distance can then be used in the speed tool.
